It´s not lace, it´s not cable, it´s a clever little stitch creating a lovely texture which is very springy and very warm. The hat is best worn when it´s not over stretched

Knitted with Rowan Wool Cotton 4ply with a ridge detail in a contrast colour (optional ).

I left out the top ridge on the pink hat to let you see what it looks like.

The hat has 3-4” (7.5 - 10 cm) negative ease
