Here's a perfect project for your last-minute holiday knitting! I created this over a weekend just after Christmas last year, out of a skein of Madelinetosh Tosh Worsted that I bought in NYC. I'm so happy to finally bring the pattern out into the world!
The pattern is written in two sizes, and a floppy and a regular version – so, four possibilities total (small/regular, small/floppy, large/regular and large/floppy). The hat is made by knitting the cable band lengthwise, then picking up stitches and knitting the hat body in the round.
Floppy version (above)
Approximately 160 yds / 143 m for regular style, or 200 yds / 183 m for floppy style, light worsted weight yarn.
Samples each used 1 skein Madelinetosh Tosh Worsted (100% superwash merino wool; 225 yds / 206 m per 108 g skein); floppy style shown in Oxblood and regular style shown in Dusk.
