Designed for my friend Johnathan to be a man-hat that’s actually fun to knit :) Enough cable to be interesting, while still being sufficiently manly for my Scotch-Irish friend who loves Celtic cable-work.
This close fitting cabled touque features a celtic cable up one side, framed by tapering columns of ribbing that blend into the brim of the hat. It’s a quick, easy knit, suitable for beginner cable knitters. The decreases are arranged to lie symmetrically around the cable panel for a balanced look.
The cable pattern, tapered sections and decreases have been charted as well as written.
Medium fits a head circumference of 19”-21”, and large fits a head circumference of 20”-22”, but the hat is very stretchy and will fit a variety of folks.
