This unisex cable aviator hat could be used as a photography prop or warm up your little traveller during the autumn and winter.

The cable pattern is simple but they’re not equally distant. It switches from closed by cables to distant cables.
Girly or boyish colours, classical, timeless or funky colours, it is yours to decide !
You could even line the hat with some polar fabric for more warmth.

The ear flaps and front flap are knitted flat, then everything is smoothly and effortlessly join together so you can continue knitting in the round.
