As a native Long Islander, I have always been obsessed with all things nautical. And although I now find myself in the Midwest, I have recently moved to a house two blocks away from the shores of Lake Erie and a lighthouse. My maritime obsession had been rekindled and it has become my mission to create knits any respectable seaman would be proud to wear.

Knitted with a worsted weight yarn, the Fisher Cable Hat is a relatively quick and easy project. It is worked from the bottom up and is mellow enough for a beginning knitter. The cabled ribbing adds a little spice, but is perfect for learning to cable. Although this nautical-inspired hat was designed for my favorite fisherman, it looks great on fisherwomen too!
