What could be more satisfying than turning a brilliantly colorful and vibrant hank of hand-dyed yarn into a sumptuously cabled hat to adorn a baby, child, or adult! The very wide braided cable is simple to do and creates a very touchable cable with lots of depth and textural interest. Thick ribbed band, and minimal Reverse Stockinette stitch background complete the design and allow the Wide Cable and yarn to show to their best advantage. This is a classic hat, but made very modern with a stunning color and bold pattern statement. The pattern includes three sizes, so you can outfit an entire family! AND, each hat uses less than one hank of the deliciously wonderful Malabrigo Worsted yarn! This is one of those patterns you'll be tempted to make again and again.
