Snakes in the Grass was inspired by a winding, ribbed cable and a skein of yarn in “Serpent” that my friend Michelle gave me.

A few notes…

Please swatch. I hate it as much as you do, but you may find that you have to go down needle a needle size for your ribbing.

Gauge is 26 stitches x 36 rows = 4” on the smaller needle

This is a slightly slouchy hat. To make it even slouchier than the pattern go up a needle size or two.

This pattern includes detailed instructions on how to do the cables so this pattern is great for first time cablers. There written instructions as well as a chart.

Thank you so much to my test knitters!
RetroLemon (Jenna), LorrieP (Lorrie), Hapi2Run (Michelle), & Steffinchen (Stefanie). And thanks again to Stefanie for translating the pattern!

And finally, thank you to woolylove (Michelle), the yarn enabler. Without her inspiration, this pattern would have been impossible.
