A modern take on a classic, this pretty wool hat features diamond motifs embedded in a richly textured cabled pattern, with columns of crossed stitches that extend into the ribbed band. A great intermediate project, Rachel features a variety of interesting cable and decrease techniques. Knit in a soft, bright colour, it’s a fashionable twist on a winter wardrobe staple.
