SMART. RELIABLE. GROUNDED.

No winter wardrobe would be complete without a classic cabled hat. Like a smart, dependable friend, it’s always there for you, making you look good. Ross is a deceptively simple hat to knit—lots of texture, but just one style of cable—so it’s a great project for both new and seasoned cable knitters alike. Knit the toque version for anyone on your list—it’s a perennial favourite. Or knit the slouchy version (with or without pom pom) for your favourite hipster.
