Choose one color of DK weight wool and enjoy the cabled columns of this cushy hat. This hat is knit in the round from the brim to the top with 2x2 ribbing for a folded brim. The cables flow into the body of the hat with twisted stitches and a collage of various cabled stitches. This hat is great for new cable knitters and there are videos linked throughout the pattern to help you cast on and cable without a cable needle. I used West Wool Tandem, my favorite DK weight yarn for hats and sweaters. It’s so smooth to knit with and beautifully showcases textured stitches with crisp stitch definition.
