This hat pattern makes a classic, adult sized watch cap in light worsted weight yarn. It features a twisted ribbed folded brim and braided cables that run in opposite directions. It’s a fun knit for an intermediate knitter who is comfortable with cables, dpns, and a variety of decrease types. It also involves a couple little tricks to get the brim to stay folded up and to keep the twisted rib facing out. I had a lot of fun designing this one, and I hope you enjoy making it!
