Product description

At the junction of agile stitchwork and intuitive fun lies the richly textured Cetus Hat. Here you’ll find a balanced combination of garter stitch and mock cable columns — rather like gilded onlay — growing out of slip stitch ribbing and cable trusses to converge into a relaxed slouch and rosette crown. And for those of you who enjoy clever tricks in your toolbox: a round of knits bisects the ribbing to form a crease that helps the brim turn up for comfortable double-warmth at the ears. You’ll also find instructions for cabling without a cable needle — sure to make this lovely hat fly off of your needles in no time!
