This simple worsted weight hat features twisted ribbing, and easy, symmetrical 2 stitch cable patterns. This design is simple and easy to memorize but creates a visually interesting hat with a stunning crown detail. This hat is knit in worsted, but can also be knit in DK for a slightly smaller size, or in Aran for a slightly larger size. I also did a sample holding 1 strand of worsted and one strand of kidsilk which turned out awesome. If this method is up your alley, I would recommend using DK with the kidsilk, though worsted works too, just at a slightly larger gauge.
