Here’s a hat pattern that is easy to memorize and fits from a child to an adult with a big head or lots of hair! Knit this up in a couple of hours for a quick gift.
Best of all, it takes only ONE skein of a yarn that’s like drugs for your fingers! If you haven’t knit with Catalina Alpaca yet, you’re missing out. Hurry up and go get some before it finishes!
After several tries, I decided to go with a brim inspired by that one on the Cabled Newsboy Cap by Shannita Williams-Alleyne in Stitch & Bitch Nation. Shannita: thanks for designing that kick-butt brim! I love it
EDITED TO ADD: the following has been corrected on the pattern pdf:
Repeat Rnds 3 through 10 two more times. Repeat Rnd 3 once. (27 rnds completed; approx. 5.5” from CO edge; you should have 4 cables total.)
