THE RACHEL HAT
A modern take on a classic, this pretty wool hat features diamond motifs embedded within a richly textured cabled pattern, with columns of crossed stitches extending into the ribbed band. A great intermediate project, Rachel features a variety of interesting cables laid out in an easy-to-execute fashion.

FIND YOUR PERFECT FIT
The stitch & round multiples on which RACHEL is based are now included in the pattern. For less experienced knitters who want to make a different size, the math is now provided. More experienced knitters can use this same information to make decisions about yarn substitution, gauge etc. I hope this helps empower you to understand your knitting better and to find your perfect fit!
