Cables are super cool, and you know what makes them even cooler - two colors! Even better, the technique used for this trick does not involve stranding yarn. You are knitting stripes and strategically slipping stitches to create the illusion of two separate cables weaving in and out of each other. Basically Mosaic color-work + Cables = Magic.
This pattern includes two sizes. The Adult size produces a loose fitting, slouchy hat that should fit most adults. The youth size is good for adults with smaller heads and youths (unless they have giant heads like my kid). The brim can worked as either a small edging or longer to provide a fold-over.
