Slip-stitch dots and dashes form a cable illusion in the cozy Telegraph cap (or slouch). The colorwork pattern is the same one used in the Endpapers cardigan. You can practice on the hat, and then β€œgraduate” to the cardi!

The hat is constructed in the round from the brim to the crown. Modifications for a slightly slouchier version are provided in the pattern. The colorwork pattern uses only one color per round and is a perfect way to add color to your knits without stranding.

The slip-stitch pattern is both written and charted.
