This design has now been updated to include a tweaked crown shaping and a slightly cozier gauge in YOTH Yarns Daughter. The pattern has been reformatted to be part of the new KO design line.

This slouchy cabled hat is worked bottom up in the round, with a cable panel offset asymmetrically by a wide wale rib. Swift decreasing produces a ruched crown; notes are also included for a beanie fit if slouchy isn’t your style. Cable pattern is both fully written and charted. Check out the Gramps Cardigan in child & adult sizes, Gramps Blanket and even Gramps Warmers for more of this stitch pattern combination. Hat shown in Medium and includes sizes for men and women.
