108 Oms Hat

This slouchy cabled hat can be worn three ways by adjusting the button tab. It is encircled with two different braided cables and a meandering cable on one side with buttons in the spaces. It is as much fun to knit as it is to wear!

This hat is a great way to show off a semi-solid luxurious merino yarn and beautiful buttons. It makes a really special gift.

This hat is knit from the bottom to the crown with a DK weight yarn. The garter tab is picked up and knitted afterwards. This hat has one size and no visible seam. 

This is a 7-page pattern with charts and written instructions.
$5 USD.
The pattern will be emailed to you within 24 hours of payment.
