This hat is part of the first offering of the 2016 BlackSheep Accessories Club. Knit in Studio Donegal Soft on size 7 needles. This hat sports a sassy cable and braid that reminded us of the Oregon Coastline and the Devil's Churn in particular. A mildly challenging knit, this hat is a great introduction to cables and charts for a new knitter or a fun, quick knit for someone more experienced.
This collaborative pattern arose from a discussion that Tina and I had about our upcoming accessories club. Tina loves hats and I love mitts. It seemed natural to join forces and make a complimentary pattern set. So Tina set out to make the hat and I made mitts to match!
This pattern is meant for an adventurous novice to advanced knitter and all those in-between.
