This fun cabled hat features a modified stitch pattern (#183) from The World of Chie Kose. The cabling is subtle, with areas that look like holes. It’s named after a class of shelled, mostly marine, protists.

Want to learn how to cable without a cable needle? You’ll get lots of practice with this hat.
