Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knitting flat
  • knitting in the round
  • cables
  • eyelets

Pattern Description:

Access your inner knitting goddess with eyelets and cables. Work the hat as a clever gauge swatch then follow instructions for a segmented finish that turns it into a cool slouchy hat. Dramatic decreases create undulating trim at the hem, cuffs, and neckline of the sweater as the trim rolls toward triple center cables flanked by subtle clusters of eyelets. Clear instructions will lead you through a gracefully classic pullover, aptly named for the "gray-eyed goddess" Athena.
