This hat continues the theme of snaking, stream-like cables and rock-like stitch patterns.

It also allows the lovely texture of the yarn itself to shine with the simple stockinette main body of the hat.

Pattern Notes
If you prefer, you can do a regular cast on and simply sew the beginning and end of the band together.

The brim is worked flat, then the ends are grafted or sewn together. Stitches for the main body of the hat are picked up around the brim.
