    Jyväskylä Knit Fest is one of my favorite wool festivals located in the charming town of Jyväskylä, Finland. One of the vendors this summer had a selection of vibrantly hand dyed Finnish wool that was displayed in the trunk of her car. I spotted this perfect green color from across the courtyard and the sheepy yarn had to be mine! So, I whipped up an easy hat with seed stitch and meandering cables and called it Hatchback.

    An increase and decrease cause the cabled section to slant resulting in an asymmetrical brim. Use worsted weight wool or hold thinner strands together for this quick cozy knit.
