The rich detail and color of carved cinnabar were the inspiration for this hat (for the coordinating scarf, see the December 2006 issue of MagKnits), which showcases a modified version of the “Double Ribbed Mock Cable” (DRMC) from Barbara Walker’s 4th Treasury of Knitting Patterns. In the pictured hat, the stitch pattern is used both horizontally, for a wide band which wraps around the head, and vertically, from band to crown, but directions are also included for a hat without the horizontal band, which omits the somewhat time-consuming step of picking up stitches along the band.
