This fun twist on the popular Pussy Hats features a braided cable running through the middle and two pompoms to accentuate the “ears”. It is knit entirely in the round using chunky yarn and can easily be finished in one evening. Whether you need a quick present or just some instant gratification, this is the project for you.

It is knit bottom up with three size options, allowing for plenty of room for trying on your patterns. The front and back braids join at the top seamlessly and create the illusion of the braid running seamlessly all the way over the crown of your hat.

The hat is an easy and quick knit that charms with its simple details. You will only need to know how to cable and the Kitchener stitch to bind-off. With its low stitch count and chunky yarn, this hat is an ideal project for those wanting to try out those skills for the first time as well.
