BY THEA COLMAN
With minimal shaping to worry about, hats are a great place to experiment with interesting motifs, and this richly cabled, unisex topper is lots of fun to knit. The repeating diamond and cable motif on this hat adds both depth and geometry to the design, and a gorgeous yarn really shows the highs and lows of the pattern off beautifully. The ribbing is designed to stagger into the diamonds, and the cables themselves are much easier than you’d expect! Leave your hat plain or throw a lovely big pom on top – it works both ways. The pattern instructions are both written and charted and notes on altering size are included as well. Both samples shown used 100% wool yarns.
