I just loved that center cable from the Abernathy sweater so much that I had to put it on a hat. There is something about working that quirky sequence that is just so much fun! This hat is knit from the brim up in a superwash dk weight yarn. It can be knit in a “cap”style or a slouchy hat style. Though make note that to get the “slouchy” style, you will need to block the hat to achieve full slouchy potential.
