Above the Clouds
A fun hat with big personality, Above The Clouds is finished with a flat seam at the top to form playful kitten ears. It knits up quick, making it perfect for gift knitting! The basketweave cable pattern is easy to memorize, and creates a pillowy, cloud-like fabric that will keep your human ears nice and toasty. The finished hat beautifully showcases variegated yarns – or, knit it all in black for the teen goth in your life.
