Yummy thick, detailed cables embellish this fun and fashionable earflap hat … or hat … or headband! (And Kolmen is the perfect word to describe it since it is the Cornish word for cable!) First, you make the headband, then you pick up stitches and knit the crown, and finally, you pick up stitches and work the earflaps.

Errata: If you downloaded this pattern before December 12, 2016 there is errata available. Send me a message and I can email you the pdf. Also, note, the numbers on the headband graph are wonky. The head band is knit back and forth so the numbers should be alternating from side to side…
