After seeing multiple store-bought versions of this hat, I decided to make my own, better version of it. This simple cable hat is as versatile as it is squishy. You can wear it as a slouch or a folded brim, or somewhere in-between.

This hat is knit from the bottom up, starting with an extra long k2, p2 rib brim and then alternating cables worked up the body. The decreases are worked in the last round of cables, using both ssk and k2tog stitches to maintain the look of cables throughout. It’s very squishy, stretchy and warm.

To increase or decrease size, adjust stitch count by 16.
