Windbreaker is a ridiculously stretchy cabled hat. Seriously. It easy fits a head circumference of 24”. The secret to this stretch is that the hat, even the cables, are based in 2x2 rib. This has the added bonus of making the hat an easy knit while the cables keep things interesting. And thanks to the long brim, Windbreaker can be worn as a slouchy hat or with the brim folded for an extra layer against the cold.

Both written and charted instructions are included for the cables and crown decreases. The pattern includes two sizes, medium and large, and an option to work a longer section of cables and a shorter brim.

The hat is worked up in worsted weight yarn. Shown in Berroco Ultra Alpaca - Oceanic Mix.
