This slightly slouchy hat features a wave and banjo cable pattern reminiscent of American vaudeville theater in the early 1900s. Or as I like to think of it, Cosmo Brown’s beginnings from the movie Singin’ in the Rain. With big yarn, some cables to keep it interesting, and old-fashioned seed stitch, this hat knits up quickly and is perfect for bus, train, or TV knitting to keep your hands busy.
This hat is knit in the round and comes in one size. Final hat dimensions are 20” around and 7.5” long after blocking. Gauge is 4 stitches to the inch.
You’ll need far less than one skein of this yarn, which makes it the perfect stash-buster or last minute knitted gift. Consider blocking around a plate to make it into a beret and gifting it for your curly-haired friends.
