About this pattern
A fun, ribbed hat that features The Vixen charts to keep your head warm during the snowy winters. The Vixen Hat is knit from the bottom-up and begins with ribbing with simple cables. There are 3 main charts for the body that you can mix & match as you choose to make the hat unique. There is a little positive ease and this hat will work well with messy buns, dreads, and larger sized heads. For smaller sizes, feel free to go down in needle sizes.

The sample was knit with 78 grams of Sparkle Sheep, 75/20/5 SW Merino/Nylon/Stellina, 4-ply 3.5oz (100gm), approximately 225 yards
