This hat pattern includes two versions: a larger Tam with a flat crown and cable-ribbed brim, and a more snug-fitting Beanie with a standard ribbed brim. Follow the instructions below for your chosen version, noting that each version has its own individual chart. The cabled stitch pattern adorning the main portion of this piece changes its total stitch count as it is being worked, which accounts for the especially squishy and textural fabric.
