After designing the Interlocking Cable Socks, I decided to use the cable pattern in other designs. It suits a hat perfectly, with 5 repeats encircling the hat. Two sizes are workable, through a change in needle size. The hat was sampled in Kraemer Yarns Naturally Nazareth, a 100% domestic wool yarn, now made using a finer micron count wool, so it is much softer and more comfortable. Both sizes uses less than one skein each, and so makes a quick accessory for yourself or a lovely gift!
