I am so pleased to be offering this pattern in collaboration with an excellent independent dyer, Karyn Graves from Twisted Hues Yarns. Not only are her yarn bases wonderful, and made with quality and interesting fibers, her dying technique creates rich, saturated colors, including semi-solids, tonals, and the popular speckles. If you haven’t worked with her yarns before, I strongly encourage you to give them a try, if you can. This project takes one skein of her superwash worsted yarn for any of the sizes. Check out her shop and read on to learn more about this warm, squishy hat!

The three cables in this ribbed hat imitate the foam and spray that comes up off of the waves as they crash into the shore. Not the neat, efficient shift of the sandy beach, but the twisting and turning of the water as it churns and brings to light the things of the deep. Twisted ribbing and occasional cables keep your interest as you knit this hat that can be made for infants to grown men. It is a quick enough knit that you can make several.

Skills Required: Knitting in the round, increasing and decreasing, cabling.
