The perfect casual, yet stylish hat for all wintery occasions! We had a skein of Homestead lying around after a wonderful yarn tasting from Plymouth and this yarn was just begging for some cables! Sometimes the yarn wants, what the yarn wants… I certainly wasn’t going to argue!

This knits up extremely fast and is a sure hit amongst family and friends this holiday season! I started it Sunday afternoon and had it finished Tuesday night!

Supplies:
1 skein Plymouth Homestead or any sturdy Worsted or Aran weight yarn
US #7 16” circular (or 40” if using Magic Loop)
US #7 DPNs
Stitch marker
Cable needle

Gauge Note: Gauge is not vital to success with this hat, but being around 4 stitches per inch will produce the most accurate sized hat in comparison to the sample seen here.

Sizing Note:
One size fits most, measures to 16” unstretched. Comfortably fits up to a 24.5” head. If a larger hat is desired, cast-on additional stitches in multiples of 8.
