This is a warm cabled hat pattern to carry you through the cooler months in classic style! The Chalet Cap is an ideal project to practice some basic yet fabulous twisted-stitch travelling cable patterns on a small, cozy canvas.
It is also a fantastic project for a single skein of worsted weight wool in your preferred colour. Sample shown in Cascade 220 worsted.
Pattern also includes instructions for working cables without a cable needle!
Thank you to Lisa Huzel for modeling, and Maureen Hannon for technical editing.
