Five big twining cables sprout from a field of blackberry stitch to adorn this pert cap. Arbor’s excellent stitch definition makes the most of the high-relief texture in the motifs; Dapple lends a softer hand to the fabric. Both yarns’ nuanced palettes allow you to choose the perfect color to coordinate with your autumn wardrobe — or knit up a bevy of different colors to gift to friends. A single-rib edge makes Huck stretchy enough to fit most adult heads.


This hat is worked circularly from the bottom up.
