Inspired by the beautiful love song Moonlight in a Winter Sky by Rose-Marie Cameron and Carey Parder – dappled rays of moonlight reflecting and interweaving on winter snow.

The Winter Moonlight Hat features an interlaced cable and rib design which naturally extends from the ribbing. The cable is featured on one side of the hat while the remainder of the hat is worked in Stockinette stitch. The hat is knit bottom up, in the round.

The Winter Moonlight Hat matches the Winter Moonlight Mittens pattern (to be published March 2021).
