Criss-crossing cables are interspersed with patches of garter stitch to create a unisex hat that’s visually rich and fun to knit. The cable pattern swirls intricately at the crown. This cozy cap is named for the springy, spongy un-dyed Manx Loughan yarn, which knits into a light, warm accessory with a wonderfully rustic texture.
Cable pattern is given in written and charted instructions.
