I LOVE a good cable pattern, but have always been a bit intimidated by the whole thing! Honestly with two little ones at home I don’t have the time, patience, or focus to work up a pattern that is full of cables! This hat is the perfect solution! The one chunky cable makes this hat beautiful and look complicated, but the mostly knit stitches of the body helps it knit up fast! The perfect combination of beautiful, challenging and quick! When I started working with this cable pattern, I thought it looked like roads all winding back to the same destination. This reminded me that, though our paths may wander we will always end up where we’re meant to be!
