Pattern Description:

Rondo is a piece of music that has a principal theme that alternates with other, often more challenging or interesting themes. The familiarity of the principal theme is very similar to the familiarity of a cable pattern that repeats itself. This cabled slouch was music in my fingers and I hope it will play for you similarly. The brim is worked in crossover ribbing which then bridges into a circular cable repeat. The crown is worked on the reverse stockinette stitch background. Cables are both written and charted. Shown in Toddler/Child and Adult Small.
