Basic Skills Necessary:

Pattern Description:

Three of the people who tested this pattern didn't have experience with cables and they all loved it! It is very easy to follow and understand. This hat is great for men, women and children with endless color possibilities!!

I personally love how stretchy this hat is and how versatile it is. I made one hat and it fits myself as well as my 2 and 5 year old children! I also included instructions to make a slouchy version. Infant sizing has been added!!
