Catenary is a winter-weight, cabled hat, perfect for the coldest days of the year. The bulky yarn makes it a quick knit, and intertwining cables that overlap every few rounds serve to keep the knitter engaged to the very last stitch. Catenary is a unisex design, and is easily modified to suit all sizes.
