Bulky Braided Knit Hat
This is a cabled bulky hat that I designed to show my support of the St. Louis Cardinals in their playoff run of 2013. I actually saw someone wearing a similar store bought hat at a game and I immediately wanted to design one just like it. I used Hometown USA super bulky yarn, but any bulky yarn would work.
For the Hometown USA yarn, I used less than one skein of each color (~50 yards blue and ~40 yards red).
If you are new to cabling, make sure to keep the cabled rows loose so that the hat maintains some stretch and will fit. As designed, this hat fits up to a 23 inch head diameter.
This can be made with any colors to support your favorite team or simply using colors that go together well.
