Note: Pattern includes instructions for both the Curvilinear Hat and Cowl.

Sweeten up your Fall wardrobe with the Curvilinear hat and cowl. The hat is worked from the brim up and features a twisted rib brim and an 8 stitch cable. Adding the pom-pom gives the hat a cute touch, but it’s optional. The cowl has a 12 stitch cable and the edges of the cowl are bordered by twisted stitches. The cable has pretty twists and turns and crisscrosses into each other. A row of twisted stitches are used to separate the cables on a background of purl stitches.
