This hat combines color and cables in a simple way. The combination of twisted cables and stripes makes for a gorgeous, textured fabric and a hat is the perfect size project for trying something new.
The hat begins in a solid background shade, worked first in deep ribbing and then in an allover twisted stitch pattern. Once the stitch pattern was established, I added the color, tucking it into each cable in neat little lines. The stripes themselves are centered on the body of the hat, and the crown is worked so it remains extra squishy and looks great either with or without a pom.
Stripes are worked in Dream State by Spincycle Yarns, which allows for beautifully subtle color changes from diamond to diamond and stripe to stripe, adding depth of color and extra interest against a deep green background. We use Lichen and Lace's Superwash worsted for our main color, which gives beautiful depth of color with the softness of merino.
Each kit includes 1 skein of Dream State, 1 skein of Superwash Worsted and the pattern!
Pattern calls for 16" size 5 & 6 circular needles
