In celebration of Shalimar Yarn’s 8th birthday, I am offering Augden and any of the other individual self-published patterns in my shop for 20% off with the code shalimarch2015 between now and the end of March.

Augden is a classic cabled hat. The sample is shown in Shalimar Yarns Homage DK in the “Butterscotch“ colorway. The pattern is suitable for intermediate knitters, with basic knowledge of cabling. Please see specific required skills below. Instructions are both written and charted. The pattern has been professionally tech edited to reduce the possibility for error, but if you have questions or believe that you have found an error, please contact me.
