Inspired by traditional Aran fisherman sweaters, Farraige is a double-brimmed cozy hat full of cables and texture. Needing only approximately 200 yards of worsted weight and utilizing a repetitive cabled pattern, Farraige is a great pattern for knitters looking to expand their cabling skills or a meditative and satisfying easy project for cable experts. Add a pompom or not depending on your style!
