This pattern is also available through Knit Picks Independent Designer Program.
The Pangloss hat offers the "best of all possible worlds" with both simple stranded colorwork and cables. The hat is worked from the bottom up beginning with an easy 2-color target design ﬂanked by garter stitch. The cable and rib pattern is worked with larger needles for a slouchy ﬁt. The hat is ﬁnished with a pompom for a touch of whimsy. This pattern coordinates with the Pangloss Mitts and if worked together, only 3 skeins of the main color and 1 skein of the contrasting color are required. The colorwork portion is charted and both charts and written instructions are provided for the cable and rib pattern.
