Cables grow out of the ribbing with a simple cross that travels across the rib to form four bold triangles around the hat. Shaping is worked neatly into the pattern with pairs of ribs and rope cables coming together at the crown. Add a pom-pom to up the cute factor or leave it off to highlight the architectural lines of the crown.
Three sizes are provided and each is charted separately for a user friendly knitting experience. For a close fit choose a size with approx 2" / 5cm of negative ease and for a slouchier fit choose a size with closer to zero ease. Measure gauge after blocking but without stretching ribbing out. In the yarn shown the rib will lie flat with the purl columns fully visible.

Worsted weight yarn with good loft and a woolly texture, woollen spun wool or wool blends are ideal. A smoother yarn could be used for a crisper texture.
