Five Fathoms Deep is a cabled hat pattern that tells a story of longing for the open sea while staying anchored and secure. Undulating cables run parallel to bold chains as they travel up the hat. This is an instant gratification project, using little yardage and taking no more than a few hours of solid knitting. With a long repeat, the knitting stays interesting without being tedious.
