The Blake Hat is an easy quick knit perfect for beginners looking to expand their horizons. The hat features a stitch pattern that combines elongated knit stitches and cables to create large X’s that cross over a contrasting background. The yarn is a decadent mix of Alpaca, wool and polyamide with a chainette construction. This makes for a lightweight but warm hat!
