i am excited to share with you The fourth and final design in my Topography hat pattern collection, the Pylon hat!
Beginning with an off-beat ribbing pattern that is then worked into thin cables up through the crown, Pylon is is a modern oversized take on a classic ribbed hat design. And since it calls for a category 6/super bulky weight yarn Pylon knits up quickly, satisfying that “instant gratification” itch that i know i feel on the regular.
not to mention, pylon is an attractive unisex knit with just the right amount of slouch. the easy but interesting and repetitive cable design makes for a meditative knit that is fun for beginning or seasoned knitters.
