To knit or to purl? That is the question. Dear Gwyneth solves this dilemma with ease, by allowing you to work in Stockinette stitch all the way up. (We’d all rather knit than purl, right?). But the real beauty of clever Gwyneth is that her single ribbed cable adds that little something extra. Wear the cable placed at the side, front or back as you prefer. Fold up the cuff or wear it slouchy. And as if that weren’t enough, this cable is reversible! You can wear this hat with the knit or purl side facing out. Oh, Gwyneth, you’re so unpredictable!
