The Cableweave Hat, accented with an intricately woven cable on one side, works up quickly in a bulky weight yarn. Rapid decreases create a gathered effect at the crown. When wearing the hat, try varying the cable placement to see where it looks best on you! (Note that one side of the hat is plain stockinette, as shown in two of the photos; the hat has been rotated for the final photo, to show the cable on the right instead of left side of the head.)
