Kernmantle is no ordinary slouchy Hat with a mono cable.

Using a clever combination of Alternate Cable and Cable cast ons, the chunky mono cable starts life at the brim edge and works its way towards the crown.

The pattern is provided in both written and charted format, for a range of sizes covering 6mths through to large adult. An illustrated tutorial covering the specialist cast ons is also included, providing you with everything you need to knit your new Hat.
