the trafalgar hat
Introducing The Trafalgar Hat. This uber-squishable beanie uses a mock open cable design to create amazing texture that is actually quite simple to knit--no cable needle required! Over the years, I’ve knit this hat in so many colours I’ve lost count--it’s a wardrobe staple.
What makes this hat one of my all-time favourites? The yarn; a single skein of buttery-soft baby alpaca for softness and drape—choose a colour that speaks to your heart. The pattern; an effortless take on classic cables—relax into the rhythm of the needles. The result; a squishable, squeezeable, easy-to wear hat you'll reach for again and again.
