Arctic Sunset Cable Hat
Dazzle your friends and family with the lovely Arctic Sunset Cable Hat. You can stay warm in true knitting style with this fun cabled hat, a modern take on more traditional patterns. This knit hat pattern will take a little bit of attention to finish; it follows a more irregular pattern, unlike most repetitive cable patterns, so you will need to keep an eye on this project as you knit it.
