Palamar is a cabled hat inspired by a recent trip to Istanbul in the winter. It was chilly, for the Mediterranean, and people were starting to bundle up. I wandered around the city wearing hand knit hats and drew an idea for a new one.

The charted cable pattern adds warmth - just in time for the first snow of the season. The tightly plied yarn creates a great definition in the cables.
