Product description

If you need a quick dose of cables and a fetching new hat, Pavo has you covered. Just choose your scale: a tam in Loft or a beanie in Shelter? Both hats feature a cable motif reminiscent of wrought iron finials for a satisfyingly intricate but finite knitting experience. Knit your Pavo in a jaunty bright hue like Hayloft or a pale neutral like Fossil to show the cables to maximum advantage.

The sweater shown on the female model is Michele Wang’s Abbott Pullover from the BT Winter 14 Collection.

Designer: Michele Wang
