Lush cables amidst a fabric of ribbing promise a knit that keeps on giving. Gorgeous texture and a silky, smooth yarn are the epitome of an addictive knit that results in accessories you’ll wear all the time.

PATTERN NOTES
The hat is cast on at the brim and worked in the round to the top of the head. After the ribbing the marker for the start of the round is moved one stitch, so the ribbing seamlessly lines up with the cable pattern and the decreases.
The scarf is worked flat, in the same stitch pattern as the hat.
The stitch patterns are both written (see Stitches Used) and charted (page 3) for your preference.
