Twisted-stitch cables—traveling cables comprised of inter-twined one-stitch strands in which each stitch is knitted through the back loop—create a tight fabric with beautiful dimension and impressive texture. There is very little information regard-ing the first occurrence of this special type of cable pattern-ing, but many consider the origin and inspiration to lay in the gnarly trees and deep forests of Germany. The rich pattern in this warm hat begins with a twisted rib that transforms into two alternating cable panels for the longer, slightly slouchy body. The crown is shaped with decreases that are integrated within the cables. A large pom-pom provides a full finish to the top.
