The design for this hat came about from the Initiate Knit Design Challenge, hosted by Francoise Danoy of Aroha Knits. The goal of the challenge is to help people get their design ideas off the ground, and this fingering-weight lace and cable hat is the result! For the initial prompt, I drew inspiration from the vertical lines of wrought-iron fencing and the leading of stained glass. The result is a hat that's lightweight, but still warm, and a great layering piece.

Pattern Notes:

The Wrought Mithril Hat is knit in the round from the brim up, using small cables and twists.  Decreases are done within the cable pattern for the crown; and the top is secured by running the end of the working yarn through the live stitches. 

The Cable Pattern is both written and charted; this pattern also has an accessible large print option that is compatible with screen-reading software which includes the written instruction.
