Rhode Trip Hat {free}

This pattern is available free (download by clicking above) or as a free Ravelry download to save to your Ravelry library.

The Rhode Trip Hat (formerly Hat No. 5) is the fifth hat I designed in 2012 while knitting hats for a great project run by a local yarn store (Lovelyarns), called the 500 Hats Project. This hat has become a staple and I love knitting it as gifts and I have made at least four for myself. The pattern deserved an update and a better name than hat no. 5!

This hat is knit in the round and uses basic cabling. This is a great project for an adventurous beginner ready to take on a cabled hat or an experienced knitter looking for an easy to remember, quick cabled hat pattern. There is a companion cowl, the Rhode Trip Cowl, also available as a free download on Ravelry.
