Inspired by foggy Pacific Northwest beaches and tide pools, this hat is perfect for wandering the seaside.

After blocking the hat fits well as a snug beanie, and has a circumference of roughly 22 inches.

Some people may feel that it is a bit tight and may benefit from using a different gauge of needles or yarn weight. The same applies to the overall length of the hat, and some may prefer to extend the brim or do an extra repeat of the body pattern.

The body is worked from written instructions, and the crown is worked from a chart. The knit is straightforward and a good introduction to both cable knitting and reading charts.
