Sausalito Smoky Cables-and-Lace Hat

Designed by Cathy Campbell

Description:  This light and airy hat matches the Sausalito Smoky Cables-and-Lace Cowl and Smoky Cables-and-Lace Fingerless Gloves.  Knitted at a slightly looser gauge than is typical for a fingering-weight yarn, Sausalito is an excellent choice for this soft and cozy set.

Size:  Adult Medium, 18½" circumference, unstretched

Materials:

Gauge:  26 sts=4" in cable-and-eyelet pattern on larger needles, slightly stretched

Abbreviations:  BO- bind off; C6L- cable 6 left (slip next 3 stitches on cable needle an hold in front of work, knit next 3 stitches, then knit the 3 stitches off the cable needle; CO- cast on; k- knit; k2tog-knit 2 stitches together; p- purl; rep- repeat; st(s) - stitches; x- times; yf- yarn forward (bring the yarn forward when making a knit stitch to make an eyelet hole - increases by 1 stitch); yo- yarn over (bring yarn around needle to make an eyelet hole - increases by 1 stitch)
