The roads we choose throughout our lives may be straight, curvy, or just totally leading us in the wrong direction; however, they make us who we are.

In Pathways, cables, ribs, and welts are combined to fun effect, showing that whatever road you take, it can make for a fun experience.

Pathways features 8 braid cables, which will look great in a variegated, speckle, or single color yarn. Combined with the lines of the welts and ribs, the different textures add depth while keeping the knitting fun. Modeled hat features a faux fur pom, however, instead of a pom, buttons can be added near the bottom of the welt section for a more sophisticated knit.

Pathways works as a unisex pattern and will look great in any color!
