This is the discreet version of my more symbol obvious Pentagram tam. The cap has a cabled pentacle hidden between the ribbings of this classical style men’s hat. With a fold up it becomes a watch man cap and without the fold it will be discreetly cabled men’s hat with a sign for those who knows how to look for it.
About the yarn
The pattern uses Garnstudio’s Alaska. It is a pure wool worsted yarn that is available in many colours. It has a rather smooth texture that shows off the cables in a good way. Any woollen yarn with similar structure and the same tension/gauge should work fine.
The hat with folded edge ribbing takes just under 2 skeins of Alaska. For a longer rib or if you need to be on the safe side of the amount used get 3 skeins.
Stitches used: knit, purl, increasing, decreasing, purled decreasing, cables
