This chunky hat is textural collage of cables, a Cablage! Hold one strand of bulky yarn together with one strand of fingering weight wool for a subtle marled effect. Brooklyn Tweed Quarry yields a lofty woolly fabric, ideal for cabled knitting. You can also hold one strand of aran weight wool together with one strand of fingering weight wool to achieve the chunky gauge.

18 sts & 20 rows = 4” / 10cm in honeycomb cables

The recommended gauge with BT Quarry + one strand of fingering weight wool held together is quite tight and dense for a very crisp defined cables. If you prefer a more relaxed fabric that isn’t as thick, I recommend using one strand of Aran weight held together with one strand of fingering weight yarn.
