I have owned the same car since I turned 16. (For those of you keeping track, that's more than half my life.) But the time finally came to let go, and this winter my mom and I drove my new (her old) car from Indiana to Oregon. After five days on the interstate, it's easy to see why the swerving cables of this hat popped into my mind. Size this pattern up or down with your yarn choice and gauge. There are sizes to fit all ages, and the length is customizable, too, for the perfect fit. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knitting in the round Cables GAUGE 24 stitches = 4". Approximately 36 sts = 4" in k2, p2. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Sport (DK, Worsted, Aran) = Toddler (Child, Adult Small, Adult Large), approximately 10 (12, 13, 14)" circumference unstretched.
