Crosshatch is an easy-to-knit, easy-to-wear hat knit in a luscious fiber blend. Kenzie blooms beautifully when blocked while still retaining stitch definition and stretch. The all-over cable pattern is a little unusual to work, but easy to memorize and a fun challenge. As with my [Horatio] pattern, I was aiming for a unisex knit cap that appeals to many people without boring the person knitting it. I love the slightly jagged nature of the texture. It reminds me of drawings shaded with crosshatching, the little diagonal lines used to create the appearance of texture.
