This comfy design will keep infants through adults warm and toasty! Ear flaps are knit first, and then worked in the round during cast on. Cable design is primarily charted, though decreases are written line by line. Front and back panels are unique, and tassels are created after the hat is knit. Hat is finished with ribbing around brim edges. This hat is a bit of a challenge–for a similar look but a bit more simplicity, check out the Master Charles Cabled Ear Flap Cap.
