Cables and dropped stitches come together for a fun and quick project suitable for spinners of any skill. The extra loft of the bulky two-ply fills the spaces of the dropped stitches and traps more air in the yarn, resulting in a warmer hat with less weight.

By tearing a batt into a continuous roving, Kristi preserved color layers to create a yarn with slow color changes. Dropped stitches paired with cables create a surprisingly quick hat.
