Forecable Hat features beautiful four strands cable design and can be knitted up in both aran and bulky weight.

Aran version of the hat is designed to have about 2” (5 cm) negative ease and to have a snug fit. Bulky version of the hat is designed to have almost no negative ease and to have a slouchy fit.

The pattern provides instructions for making two versions of the hat in both weights—with simple ribbed brim and with double folded ribbed brim for added warmth.
