CABLED HATS never go out of style, and this chic example for women by Lisa Richardson is sure to make a gift that will be gratefully received! The wide cables themselves add interest without making the hat too bulky. Made using Rowan’s super-chunky Alpaca Chunky yarn and 10mm knitting needles, the hat will knit up quickly, and shouldn’t be too challenging even for beginner knitters with some experience. The yarn itself is amazingly soft, and light yet warm, and comes in six neutral shades from cream to dark grey.
