A simple but unique design, this hat would be great for the knitter who wants to practice different techniques in a smaller project and the finished result is great for snow sports! Perfectly mirrored cables and ribbing add to the charm of the hat. The super soft, lightweight and warm yarn is a treat for your hands and your head.

Notes: This hat starts from the earflaps starts with the earflaps and works up. Instructions for making braided tassels and a pompom can be found at the end of the pattern. Always slip the first stitch of every row on the earflaps in order to create a smooth edge. To make a child’s sized hat, knit one less cable repeat in body of hat.
