♫ The Music ♫
The Humours of Kinvara is a lively traditional reel. Kinvara itself is a seaport town in South Galway, Ireland. In Irish it’s “ceann mhara” which means head of the sea. And so the lively music and motion of the sea once again inspire beautiful cables.

Knit in the round from the bottom up, wear this richly cabled hat with the ribbed brim folded over for extra warmth or wear it slouchy style. An Estonian Cast On provides lots of stretch (or use your own favourite stretchy cast on.)

Each size has its own set of directions. Both charts and written directions for charts are provided.
