A quick and fun knit, perfect for last-minute gifting or a relaxing weekend project after a hectic week.

This is a bulky version of my previously published worsted weight design.

The Winter Dreamer hat features a unique and striking ribbed cable pattern. Bulky/Chunky weight wool creates plump stitch definition and makes this a quick and satisfying knit.

The special cables create a 4X1 rib that expands once blocked, so it’s highly recommended that you use a natural fiber, instead of acrylic or a high percentage acrylic blend.

Yardage:
Approximately 110 yards of Bulky weight yarn

Sizing:
The pattern is written to fit an average adult: 20” to 22” circumference

Blocked Hat measurements:
8.5” wide at brim, 9” depth

Note: A stretchy cast on is critical for the ribbed brim. This is what makes the hat accommodating to a wider range of head sizes. Practice this technique with the video tutorial. I promise you, it’s fun and addictive!

Pattern includes a chart as well as written instructions. A link to video tutorials on the tubular cast-on and cable stitches is also provided.

This pattern includes an “open license” which allows the knitter to sell the finished item.
