This pattern is only available as part of the ebook Point/Counterpoint Volume 3.


Included as part of Point/Counterpoint Volume 3. Two designers + two yarns = inspiration through collaboration. Each designer independently created an accessory, then sent only a photo of the finished object to the other. In response, the designers used the same yarn to create a new accessory inspired by the first, thus making a set. The only limit is their creativity!


Ayle

As the last moments of summer drift away and the cool autumn days roll in, my mind always shifts to thoughts of hat season. A time for gently tugging a favorite hat down over my ears
and pulling my coat up to keep the back of my neck warm. The warm feeling of wool against
my skin - keeping the cold at bay.

Everyone loves a snuggly hat - this one is cozy and warm without being too heavy. The combination of the richly textured cable pattern with the lighter sport-weight yarn makes
for a fantastic autumn hat. Extra length in the brim and a generous length mean it can easily be pulled down to keep the wind at bay, keeping your ears stay warm and dry, whatever the weather.

Available in two sizes this hat is a joy to knit, you also have the option to work from charts or comprehensive written instructions means.
