Free Pattern: Subtle Twist Hat

Mr. PieKnits hat is now available as a free pattern download!

Subtle Twist Cabled Hat

Well hello there cables!

I managed to get a little better shot showing the cabled decreases at the crown. It is tricky to photograph the top of your own head! I would like to get some photos of Mr. PieKnits modeling his hat but our daylight hours together in the winter are pretty much weekend limited.

Subtle Twist Beanie

This was designed as a gift for my husband who tends towards simple knits but still wants something interesting. While most of this hat is worked in a simple rib pattern, subtle cables spring forth twisting into the top decreases adding interest. The result, an engaging knit for both the wearer and knitter! As a very stretchy hat, it fits most adults.

The pattern contains both written and fully charted instructions.

Ths sample shown is knit in Schulana Cashmere Millefiori, other suggested alternative yarns are listed below. NOTE: This pattern was worked to use up ALL of the possible yarn without a swatch left over.
