This pattern has cross-cross cables spread out around the hat. The all over texture creates a thick fabric and will keep your head toasty warm! The wool yarn used in this patter is extremely durable and very easy to care for. But the durable fabric is also very soft! It is cozy to wear and will never scratch or itch. The garment will fold to fit easily in a coat pocket.

The crossing cable pattern used is more complex than other patterns and requires a knowledge of carrying the same tension across the entire work. The wool yarn creates a thick and warm fabric. The hat is made to sit like a slouch beanie.
