One Bourbon is deeply cabled, with bold lines that give the hat a strong manly texture. Knit in Plucky’s Primo, it’s also soft and warm!

Due to the complex motif, I have not added modifications to the math for alternate hat sizes. However, you can easily change to a lighter or heavier yarn or play with needle size to get the size desired. Note that any alternate sizing will depend on your gauge IN THE CABLE MOTIF, so please swatch.

That said, I suggest Primo Aran on #8s if you need a hat that’s just a teeny bit bigger.
