Stockinette gauge is: 4.5 stitches per inch
Color A-50 yards (I used less for the sample, but 50 yards is a safe amount to have. This can be easily done with leftovers).
Color B-110-130 yards (If you like a longer slouch on your hat, add 10-20 yards for your size to be safe).

Cabled pattern for brim is charted and the rest of the hat is written out. Instructions are written out for two color cables with a cable needle.

This hat is a fun hat to knit with a bit of kick. 2 color cables are lots of fun, and a great way to show off your yarn.

The pattern comes in three sizes, you will want a snug brim when knitting. Slouch hats with loose brims are prone to slippage.

This hat is available as part of an E-book along with the inspiration pattern: Fretwork.
