There seems to be a never ending tension between people who want to wear plain hats and knitters who want to knit fun hats. The Plain & Fancy Hat pleases both as it is reversible with plain k2, p2 ribbing on one side and cables on the other. And it’s super warm!

Yarn Spud & Chloë Sweater (55% wool, 45% organic cotton; 160 yd 146 m/3½ oz 100 g): #7524 chocolate milk, 3 skeins. Yarn distributed by Blue Sky Alpacas.
