A hat for the cold weather, with chunky cables, earflaps and braids. This was inspired by my son who wanted a fashionable and functional hat to wear at the ski hill, where he goes at the first sign of snow.
The original design was for my son, who has a lot of wild curly hair! So the size is medium to large. As decreasing stitches for a smaller size will not work because of the pattern, I suggest using a smaller needle if this hat is going to be for someone with a smaller head (or not a lot of hair!).
There are four pages to the pattern, with written instructions and photographs. Double knitting yarn was used for the pictured garment, you don't need to use the yarn specified as long as you make sure that you check the gauge. The hat is knit flat, so only straight needles are required.
