Twisted – A New Hat Design

During the last week of 2011 I designed and knit up (and wrote down) a new hat pattern!  It features twisted cables and ribs, a massive pompom and braided ear tassels.

I love the details of this hat

A simple but unique design, this hat would be great for the knitter who wants to practice different techniques in a smaller project and the finished result is great for snow sports!  Perfectly mirroring cables and ribbing add to the charm of the hat and the super soft, lightweight and warm yarn is a treat for your hands and your head.

Perfect for men and women
