Riverport cable hat
Note: Both the "Riverport Cable Headband" and the "Riverport Cable Hat" patterns are included.
Riverport, a tiny river-front community on the aptly named Fairhaven Peninsula along the LaHave in Lunenburg County, Nova Scotia, maintains its rich Maritime traditions and is minutes away from the LaHave Cable Ferry ~ all-in-all, an apt namesake for this cabled collection. When a cold nor'easter blows, it's tucked up warm you'll want to be! And what better way than with lusciously cabled knitwear.
The cabled hat band with knit-on I-Cord edges is worked first and joined by sewing a button through the overlapped band. There is no buttonhole. Stitches are then picked up along the top of the band for the hat crown.
Both charts and written directions are provided for the cable.
