Not cabled is a hat with a textured pattern that looks like it uses cables. The illusion is achieved with just working knit and purl stitches.

Worked with a worsted weight yarn and a 2x2 ribbed hem using a long tail tubular CO, the stretchy cast on holds the hat snuggly over your ears and keeps you warm during cold days in autumn and winter.

SIZES

YARDAGE
1 skein De Rerum Natura Gilliatt or approx. 160 (190) meters/175 (210) yards worsted weight yarn to achieve given gauge.

Each knitter knits differently, therefore yardage is an estimate.
