A fantastic super-warm last-minute winter gift, this hat knits up from a little more than one skein of worsted-weight yarn in just a few hours. The cables add interest, but depending on your color choice it can be suitable for men or women. It’s even stretchy enough that you probably don’t have to measure the wearer’s head, and the smallest size will even fit middleschool aged kids. Make it a set with the matching neckwarmer and mitts to keep your loved ones even toastier. Both the hat and neckwarmer patterns are also available for bulky-weight yarn.

UPDATED to include charted as well as written instructions, simplify the cable pattern, and correct the tendency of the original to come to a point.

This listing is for the pattern to knit this hat, delivered as a 2-page PDF. You will receive a download link after checkout.

For some issues, I may send you a prepaid return label when you contact me. For all issues, if you don't contact me first the package may get lost because I share my space with folks who don't always remember to tell me that a package came for me or where they stashed it.

Probably! My counting bracelets are made from coils of memory wire that expand and contract around your wrist. If the width of your wrist measured flat at the widest point is between 2" and 3", the bracelet should fit fine with no alterations.
If your wrist is particularly large or small, contact me about making you a custom version. I can probably accommodate you! Contact me via Etsy Convo to discuss.
