OLEANDER is a quick to knit hat in worsted weight yarn, featuring a fun ribbed cable pattern that looks great on both sides! Although it looks complex, the cable crosses are worked only every 4th round and stitches are always worked as they appear, which makes for intuitive knitting. The crown decreases are worked within the cable pattern for full reversibility - wear it both ways!

Gilliatt from De Rerum Natura is a plump, woollen spun 3ply merino, perfect for making the cablework pop while still being soft enough for next to the skin. Hat is worked in the round from the brim up. Chart and written directions are provided.
