We all need a wonderfully squishy cabled hat, right? This is a great use of one skein of bulky weight yarn. It features a bottom up construction in the round, with slowly sloping cables continuing throughout the crown. The crown features a beautifully cabled motif. Helton was designed with it’s sister cowl pattern, Ashe, in mind.
