There is undeniable drama in this hat, isn’t there…
From the colors to the textures in the yarn and the cables done without a cable needle, this is a fabulous hat to knit and to wear. The faux fur pom pom adds fun and a bit of a whimsy with a wow factor and it is movable! Got o love it!

The written and charted pattern gives you two size options (S/M - 20/21”) and (L/XL - 22/23”) and since the cable inspired pattern expands when wearing, we get away with it. Some testers made the S/M version for their little kids~

A single Giant yarn cake (for both sizes) in color combo Kobalt/Blue used here. 200 yards/150 grams in a bulky weight, held double throughout, creating a super bulky weight.
Knit kits with yarn, faux fur pom and locking stitch marker are available at

12 sts and 20 rows in 4” of Stockinette stitch in super bulky weight yarn. It is imperative to get the right gauge for a proper fit!
