Pattern Description:

Pipe Dream Hat is inspired by that special time of year when the shops are filled with chunky-knit winter hats and seasonal shoppers snapping them up.
The embossed cabled knit stitch is the hat's main feature and is knit using either an easy-to-follow chart or written instructions. The hat is knit from the base up, with a deep embossed ribbed edge for added warmth and style, which flows effortlessly into the pipes pattern. And the chunky yarn used means this can be whipped up in just a few hours, making it the ideal handcrafted Christmas gift.
The Pipe Dream hat will keep any cold head warm and cosy this winter, and can be knit to fit toddlers, children, teens and adults. Best of all, it is completely unisex, suiting boys, girls, men and women alike - with or without the addition of the pom pom to finish.
