Multitudes is a classic cabled hat that plays with scale by combining both very large and very small cables on a reverse stockinette background. Nupps, twisted ribbing and crown decreases that are worked into the cable pattern provide this pattern’s special details - and the pom pom the icing on the proverbial cake!
