On the Slopes Hat
This stretchy hat features two different widths of cables to create a cozy look that is perfect for winter. Beginning with a double-cable band knit in rows, you can easily customize the size by seaming the band when it is the right length, ensuring that this hat will have the perfect fit. Once the band is complete, stitches are picked up along the edge and knit in the round to finish the shape. The addition of complementary cables on the fabric of the hat completes the unisex look. Cleverly hiding the crown-shaping decreases in the cables finishes off a cozy hat perfect for everyone in the family.
