Solar Storm is a worsted weight hat, featuring cables, slipped and twisted stitches and seed stitch sections to create a beautiful and eye-catching texture. It is designed to have little negative ease and to be a little slouchy.
The pattern provides instructions for making five sizes—for both adults and children, and two versions—with simple ribbed brim and with double folded ribbed brim for added warmth.
