Blendon Woods Hat is a fun update to the classic cabled winter staple, and it will be a quick additon to your wardrobe! You’ll use less than one skein of worsted weight yarn, making this a perfect weekend project. A winding cable panel is featured at front and center, and an allover honeycomb texture wraps around the rest of the hat. Top it off with a pom pom if desired, it will look great either way!

The last 3 pattern photos show the hat with no pom, a medium-sized pom (used on the main pattern photos), and a large pom.

This pattern assumes knowledge of cabling and working in the round. Both charts and written directions are provided for all stitch patterns.
