Staccato train tracks iterate in panels of sustained and broken garter rib across Gault’s textural surface. These ordered repeats of tidy garter lines transform this effortless knit into a go-to, urban favorite. Whether paired with a smart jacket for an elevated streetwear ensemble or tossed in your backpack for your next outdoor adventure, its waffle texture is sure to keep you warm without sacrificing style. Arbor’s springy twist emphasizes every raised ridge and highlights the depth of this three-dimensional motif. Knit circularly from brim to crown, this pattern is the perfect companion to the Calderon cardigan which embraces the same base motif. Instructions both written and charted make this an ideal project for novice knitters and masters alike.

Please note: the stitch patterns used for this garment include written as well as charted instructions.
