Alley is a fully reversible ribbed cable hat. Its flowing, winding cables give a soft, modern dreamy impression. I designed this hat for Tokyo Yarn Crawl 2022, imagining avid knitters pottering around local yarn shops with great joy. I hope you have a relaxing day with Alley Hat.
The pattern includes both charts and written instructions.
