Designed as a companion piece to my Autumn Dreamer shawl. The Autumn Dreamer hat features a unique and striking ribbed cable pattern. The edging is knit in a contrast color in garter stitch, allowing the cable pattern to truly shine. Worsted weight wool creates plump stitch definition and makes this a relatively quick and satisfying knit. The special cables create a 4X1 rib that expands once blocked, so it’s highly recommended that you use a natural fiber, instead of acrylic or high percentage acrylic blend. Yardage: Approximately 140 yards of worsted weight for Main Color Approximately 40 yards of worsted weight for Contrast Color Sizing: Pattern is written in a size Average Adult (22” to 22.5” head size). Blocked Hat measurements: 8.5” wide, at brim x 9” deep, cable pattern has negative ease of up to 5”, so there’s plenty of stretch if you want to block to a slouchier size. Garter brim has negative ease of up to 1”. Note: Use a stretchy cast on for brim. Sizes for Teen/Small Adult , Large and X-large will be added in the next couple weeks. An update will be sent automatically to your Ravelry library. Pattern includes a chart as well as written instructions. A link to video tutorials on the cable stitches is also provided. This pattern includes an “open license” which allows the knitter to sell the finished item.
