Braided Cable Hat
In small, medium, and large sizes, this hat will be a favorite for everyone in your family. It's quick to knit and the braided cable band keeps it interesting. With Swish Worsted's huge variety of colors, this is a good go-to pattern for gifts or to accessorize any outfit you might have in mind. Instructions are included for both the solid and two-toned versions.
The simple cable, small amount of provisional cast-on and special knit/purl grafting technique make it a good project for trying methods that may be new to the less-experienced knitter. Line-by-line instructions make the grafting a breeze.
Images show medium in one color and small in two toned . You will need approx 2 skeins of Swish for all sizes of the one color version; for the 2 toned version, you will need 1 skein of the main color for all sizes and 1 skein of the contrast color for the small or 2 skeins for the medium and large.
