Windbreaker Hat


Windbreaker is a ridiculously stretchy cabled hat that’ll keep you warm in cold winds. Worked in 2x2 rib, the hat is an easy knit with just enough cables to keep things interesting. Wear it as a slouch or with the brim folded for an extra layer against the cold.

The Windbreaker Hat is worked in the round from the bottom up. Both written and charted instructions are included for the cables and crown decreases. The pattern also includes an option to work a longer section of cables and a shorter brim.
