“My favorite hats are the ones I grab and throw on over and over again – those that pair easily with a wide variety of looks. When I created this design, I was thinking about a hat that would fit these criteria. And what guy doesn’t like having a classic cabled beanie (or two) in his closet?

Worked in a fingering weight yarn, this cap stays light and comfortable while still being warm and stylish. The addition of a gathered crown and slightly slouchy silhouette gives a modern touch to this iconic style. It’s definitely one you may find yourself knitting in multiple colors – I personally have more of them than I care to mention!” – Jared Flood
