Classic, cute, and quick-to-knit. The “Twisted Rope Hat” is a winner for boys, girls, men*, and women alike.

One of my first and most popular designs. A classic earflap hat reminiscent of a basic chullo. With two lengths of earflaps to choose from and a back that is slightly longer than the front to cover the neck, this will become your go-to winter toque pattern for everyone in the family.

The hat is constructed in heavy aran-weight yarn by first making the cabled headband, then picking up stitches for the crown and knitting in the round, then the earflaps.
