Gotta love a great cabled hat for its texture, warmth, and classic visual appeal! This one is fun and quick to knit as well, sporting an intricate cable perfect for both men and women.

It’s knit from the bottom up in the round, for a seamless finish. Cable design is charted and written out.

Less than 200 yards needed for a hat.

Co-ordinating patterns, #254 Riley Fingerless Gloves and #258 Riley Scarf are available separately to knit up with this hat as a fabulous gift set.

Samples shown are knit in Knit Picks Capra DK, which knits up more like a worsted-weight in this pattern. Some suggested substitutes listed.
