The design for this hat came about thanks to two things: first, the (now defunct) Ravelry Designer’s Challenge, based on a woodland theme, and second, my roommate needed a new hat! 

She wanted something that was thick and warm with a brim that could fold up over the ears. So, I started experimenting with different hat designs, but most of them didn’t seem warm enough. After trying various knitted linings, I came up with this idea. It’s thick, warm, and heavy enough to keep all but the worst of the winter winds out!

It’s the sister pattern to my Woodland Mittens.

Pattern Notes:

The result is a cabled hat knit in the round from the brim up, using a provisional cast on to create a double-layered, lined hat. It is completely reversible, so you don’t have to worry about which way you wear it! 

This pattern has written instructions, and the stitch pattern is both written and charted. This pattern also has an accessible large print option that is compatible with screen-reading software. This option includes only the written instruction.

Blue Sample is done in *Squoosh Fiber Arts Ultra Worsted. When looking for a substitute, the yarn should have a good bit of structure to it. Something multi-ply with a high wool content is recommended.
