Please note: the errata listed is for the first edition of the print book - all subsequent versions of this pattern are correct :)

Cables within cables make for a crossing that’s unusually smooth, as well as creating a diamond texture that echoes the moss stitch background. The neatness of this effect is supported by working all shaping within the stitch pattern – just perfect!

Written and charted instructions for three sizes are supported with illustrated tutorials for the alternate cable and cable cast-ons.

Verschachtelte Zopfmuster und eine leicht slouchige Form (mit Hinweisen zum Verstärken des Slouch-Effekts) − diese Mütze muß man einfach haben! Wie bei den anderen Modellen aus dem Buch „Mützen mit Twist“ sind die Oberkopfabnahmen auch hier raffiniert ins Muster eingebaut, wodurch ein nahtloses Strickstück mit sauberem Erscheinungsbild entsteht.
