This classic hat, which features a large cabled braid over a field of Garter Stitch, comes in two sizes: a smaller version (which can be finished in a traditional Tam shape) or a longer, slouchy version. The 2×2 ribbed brim integrates directly into the plaited braid and the crown shaping occurs in concentric rings (similar to a round-yoked sweater) for a clean finish.
