The opening and closing of cables in this pattern reminds us of the knots in a beautifully grained piece of wood and we think it works up great for men or women. The twisted stitches in this hat only cross as a two-stitch cable occasionally, making it a very easy pattern to work, especially as you don’t need a cable needle.
