Worked in the round, this hat is a cloche or “box” style with vertical sides and a flat top, featuring a strong horizontal cable that is especially flattering for long oval and rectangular faces.

Based on the Skipperdee cardigan, this hat shares
the magic Celtic cable trick that makes the companion
sweater such a fun knit. The lateral cable increase and decrease
are both explained below, but are also illustrated
