This is the perfect cabled hat! It was a labor intensive - but fun - project. Problem is, I don’t look good in it at all. I think it’s the folded brim - it’s too much hat for my face, or something.

I knitted this flat instead of in the round, mostly because I was too lazy to knit up a gauge swatch in the round. It probably would have been easier to knit this in the round because keeping track of what was going on when knitting the wrong side rows was a bit of a pain.

I knitted the rib for 5” instead of 6” because 6” just seemed way too long. I forgot to take into account how that would affect the overall length of the hat, so my hat is a little less slouchy than intended. (9” long with the brim folded.) It’s not a deal breaker, but I would have preferred more slouch.
