Need a pretty present fast? The smocking looks like a fancy cable stitch, even though it’s very simple. This lovely hat can be produced by a fast knitter in just over 1 hour, or about 2.5 hours for a slower knitter.

Tools: 8 mm (US 11) 40 cm (16 inch) circular knitting needle, 10 mm (US 15) 40 cm (16 inch) circular knitting needle (or size needed to obtain gauge); tapestry needle
