♫ The Music ♫
The Humours of Lisheen is a traditional Irish jig; its bouncy tune evokes images of ceilidh dancing and kitchen parties where dancing is always on the menu. The interweaving of the dance moves always bring cable knitting to mind.


Stitch pattern is charted only.

A challenging cable project with closed-ring cables, this hat begins at the brim with a tubular cast on. Once the cable pattern is complete, the crown is worked in Stockinette stitch.
