New pattern: Saxony Hat

The Saxony Hat has all the options for a cable lover, or someone who’s just getting into the beauty of cable knitting: Instructions include directions for working flat or in the round. Use the included cable chart or work from full written instructions, whichever you prefer. And the hat looks great on both men and women.

The cable panel appears twice on the hat, separated by reverse stockinette stitch. Using Aran weight yarn, it knits up fast, and the cable is fun to work. This hat makes even plain yarn knit up into something you’ll want to wear every day.
