Product description

Rhythmic all-over cables in Shelter produce a handsome, seaworthy cap that’s quick and satisfying to knit. After a short band of 1 x 1 rib, the hat breaks into a geometric motif of interlocking tiered cables. Perfect for knitters who have tried some basic cables and feel ready for more challenge, the charts are predictable and easy to memorize. The pattern includes a modification for a slightly shorter beanie length. Deep texture means the pattern won’t be lost in dark colors, so this design is a good choice for Cast Iron, Soot, Artifact, Old World, or Plume.

    NEEDLES

    Size A (for Main Fabric):

    • One 16″ circular needle and one set of double-pointed needles (DPNs)* in size needed to obtain gauge listed
    • Suggested Size: 5 mm (US 8)


    Size B (for Ribbing):

    • One 16″ circular needle*, three sizes smaller than Size A
    • Suggested Size: 3¾ mm (US 5)


    Size C (optional; for Tubular Cast On only):

    • One 16″ circular needle*, two sizes smaller than Size B
    • Suggested Size: 3¼ mm (US 3)


    *32″ circular needle can be used instead of 16″ circular and DPNs if using the Magic Loop method for working small circumferences in the round.

    Note: If you have adjusted the needle size to obtain the correct gauge, it may or may not be necessary to make a matching adjustment to the needle size used for Tubular Cast On due to variance in individual work. You may wish to test your chosen cast-on method on your swatch.
