A Simple Twist of Fate Hat Knitting Pattern - HFS Original - Downloadable PDF


When you’re in the mood for a simple cable twist this versatile, unisex, one-size-fits-many hat is just the answer!

This is a super easy hat that works up quickly, (there are only 2 rounds of cables!), and it’s honestly hard to get a bad fit due to the ribbing throughout the hat.
One needle is used throughout the hat, (although you will need DPNs for the crown), and there are a variety of ways to make the hat your own by changing up colour combinations, using a solid colour throughout, adding a yarn or faux fur pom pom, etc.

We’ve used the lovely DK Luxe from Yama Fibre Art, (a delicious blend of merino wool, alpaca, and kid mohair), for our version, but the pattern will work with a wide variety of DK or worsted weight yarns. Get a skein of something special or dive into your stash!

NOTE:  This is a downloadable PDF pattern and you will be sent an email with the link to download when your purchase is completed.  You will NOT receive a print version of the pattern, however you will be able to easily print it yourself from the download.
