Written for FOUR yarn weights - 4ply (fingering/sock), 5ply (sport) 8ply (DK) and 10ply(worsted)
Choose your favourite yarn to make the perfect hat for you.
With sizes for all the family, you can use the same hat pattern for everyone. Using different yarn weights will make the simple cable more or less obvious. In a 4ply the pattern looks textured, while in the 8ply and 10ply the cable is more visible.
Knit in the round from the bottom up, the crown decreases are subtle and hidden in the textured stitches, this is a simple, seamless knit.
The pattern includes both charted and written instructions for the cable, as well as including instructions for knitting the cable without a cable needle.
A matching Cowl is also available, or buy both using the Ebook option and get a great discount.
Pattern has been Test Knit and Tech-Edited.

I am a knitter, and have been knitting obsessively for the past 4 years, although I learnt to knit as a small child. Pattern design is my new passion, I love the freedom to design patterns that I can't otherwise find!
