Pattern Description:

The WiFi Hat - suited to men and women - lets you have the look of cables without the cable needle. (Thus the punny name: this hat has all the fun of cables without actual cables - just like wifi!)

My mom taught me to knit when I was 12, but I really went gaga for crafting in grad school -- so much so that I've changed careers from history professor to full-time knitting designer, teacher, and writer!
