In Italian, Corda means “rope.” This hat was inspired by the amazing designs of a famous Italian knitwear design house, more commonly known for their chevrons, but they also hold their own with cables. Corda, with its dwindling cables, comes in many sizes to fit newborns to large adults.

This hat is worked from the bottom up in the round. Both written and charted instructions are included.

XXS [XS, S, M, L, XL] see size chart in the photos on the left for additional sizing information. M shown on a 21 in/53.5cm head.

23 sts and 30 rnds = 4 in/10cm in Cable Pattern One with US 7/4.5mm needle, or size needed to obtain gauge. Always wash and block your swatch to ensure a proper fit!
