From the Designer:
I like hurting my brain. I mean that in best possible sense. When I wanted to make an unusual cabled hat my friend Elizabeth suggested knitting from one earflap to the other. I just could not leave the idea alone. It haunted me from the shadows. It followed me down the dark alleys of my dreams. I’ve wrestled it from the shadows for you--a snugly fitting cabled hat knit flat but with no seams. Knit all in one piece from the bottom of one tie over the top of the head and back down to the bottom of the other tie.
Circumference 20” - Earflap to earflap (measured over top of head) 18”
Suggested Skill Level:
Intermediate - Advanced
