Keuka Hat updates the classic beanie with a modern chevron cable brim. Worked up in DK weight yarn, this versatile design is offered in four sizes and the styling is perfect for both men and women. This hat has an easy to memorize brim pattern with a stockinette crown that helps your project fly off the needles. The brim is just the right height to add in a super soft lining (cashmere, anyone?) to keep your ears extra cozy.

This pattern assumes knowledge of working in the round and basic cables. Both charts and written directions are provided for all stitch patterns.
