Gorgeous cables and a flattering style are the design elements for this very cozy and warm hat. This hood transcends fashion changes. It is now and forever a welcome fashion accessory.
A hooded hat definitely makes a fashion statement and this one is designed to keep the blustery winds at bay. The collar of this hat can be tucked smoothly under a coat or sweater. Or the collar is so attractive that it can be worn on the outside. Either way the collar provides extra warmth that an ordinary hat does not.
This design incorporates an easy cable pattern that enhances the actual fit of the hat. The cables allow for stretching and/or snugness to accommodate various sizes. So this hat is the perfect one size fits most!!! A flattering stitch pattern frames the face and the strategically placed stitch increases create the smoothness of the collar.
The pattern is easy to knit, stylish, functional, and practical all in one.
