This unisex, adult sized, richly cabled hat was inspired by the Pembroke Vest that I created for Petite Purls first issue. The central cable from the vest pattern, flanked by rope cables is worked in four panels around the circumference of the hat.
My favorite part of creating cabled hats is playing with how the cables resolve in the crown. Cable stitches have a way of creating something new and beautiful as they come together through decreases. This hat is no exception, with the cables forming an 8 pointed star at the top.
