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!
This hat is worked circularly from the bottom up. The textured motifs are worked from charts only.
