A unisex hat featuring twisted stitch cables that can be worked in beanie and slouchy versions. The hat can be worked in a single colour or the fact that the cable stitches are slipped on alternate rounds mean they can be worked in a solid colour against a striped background.
I promise that you want to use the yarn shown, A Verb for Keeping Warm's Slick, a tightly twisted wool silk blend with excellent stitch definition, so it's not too unfortunate that the pattern is currently only available as a kit.
In the future it will be available in Whimsical Little Knits 3 and as an individual pattern in print and pdf, but if you're eager to get started kits can be ordered from here. KnitCulture has kindly offered a discount of 10% off you just need to enter KNITCULTURE10 at the checkout.
Thanks to Stephen West for modelling and for attempting the shockingly hard 2 person coordinated knitting with me.
