When you’re in the mood for a simple cable twist this versatile, unisex, one-size-fits-many hat is just the answer!

This is a super easy hat that works up quickly, (there are only 2 rounds of cables!), and it’s honestly hard to get a bad fit due to the ribbing throughout the hat.

One needle size is used throughout the hat, (although you will need DPNs for the crown), and there are a variety of ways to make the hat your own by changing up colour combinations, using a solid colour throughout, adding a yarn or faux fur pom pom, etc.

We’ve used the lovely DK Luxe from Yama Fibre Art, (a delicious blend of merino wool, alpaca, and kid mohair), for our version, but the pattern will work with a wide variety of DK or worsted weight yarns. Get a skein of something special or dive into your stash!

Note: For two colour hat as shown you will need approximately 50/55g MC Graphite and 15/20g CC Rustic Taupe
