Whiskey Highball Cable Hat in The Yarn Collective Bloomsbury DK
“This hat is a collaboration with The Yarn Collective and LoveKnitting, featuring the custom colours of Bloomsbury DK, from the brilliant Carol Feller. As soon as I saw the generous yardage in one skein, I knew it was time to design a cap with fat, satisfying cables AND a deep, cuffed brim. This is perfect - a deep, soft, cozy hat, and long enough so the brim covers everything I want it to.” – Thea Colman
The bold cables contrast with the slipped stitch detail nicely, and as you approach the crown shaping, they narrow and cross inwards to taper off while the single ribs work their way towards each other. This creates curved lines that frame the tip of each cable in a delicate “star” at the top of the hat.
