Knitted up in a soft yarn, this simple yet stylish hat is a favorite among chemotherapy patients. It is a quick project with 55-65 rows depending on the brim style you choose.

There are several photographs showing clearly how to work cable twists. There’s also a fun idea for keeping track of rows/rounds.
