The Palermo Hat transforms plain 2x2 ribbing into something special with the help of a simple cable. The interplay of light and shadow suddenly creates deep textures and interest. It’s easier than it looks!

I love Kunlun for hats. Its round structure shows off textured stitches
beautifully, while its velvety-soft hand makes every stitch a pleasure to knit.
