The Parallelogram Hat showcases a bold new cable and ribstitch pattern from Norah Gaughan’s Knitted Cable Sourcebook and also features an unusual and absorbing decrease technique that continues the motif into the crown. This hat is worked in a cozy, tight-twist merino that makes the cables and ribbed texture stand out.
