Teewinot Cabled Hat

image

The bulky cables of this deceptively simple hat bring to mind something grand and majestic like Teewinot, one of the peaks in the Teton Mountain Range in Wyoming. Made with a gorgeous Noro bulky yarn of your choice, this hat is a super quick, luxury knit. The cables are so bulky, you only use your cable needle for 4 rounds! To make this hat even more majestic, add a big, fluffy pompom.
