This Hat pattern is ideal for those who love a different technique, or who loathe working in the round or fighting with DPNs. The gentle cables provide an elegant and stable brim, whilst the body with its eyelets provide a casual, generous shape.
Constructed sideways by knitting on straight needles, using short rows for shaping and provisional cast-on then Kitchener stitch for a perfect, seam-free finish.
Pattern is provided in both written and charted format and is knit from side to side.
