Ilex is a simple hat starting with a ribbed brim and continuing on with a lace and cable panel surrounded by cushy garter stitch. The combination of stitch patterns is both relaxing and interesting enough to keep your brain engaged.

approximately 220 yards/200 metres of a DK/Worsted yarn (You will need an additional skein if you want a pom pom for the largest size)
1 16 in (40 cm) US 6 (4 mm) circular needle
1 16 in (40 cm) US 8 (5 mm) circular needle
