Pattern Details

Kernmantle’s striking effect stems from the contrast in gauge between the dense cable and its background of moss stitch. The slouch format thus gets a structural element that’s underlined by starting the cable right at the brim, with a perfect edge achieved by using two different cast-ons (tutorials provided). Four sizes accommodate everyone from baby to large adult, with both written and charted instructions included. Yarn: 129 (162, 206, 254) yd/118 (148, 188, 233) m 51yd/47m for a 6x6in/15x15cm swatch in St.St. worsted weight, single ply yarn.
