A handsome pattern you can adapt for anyone, the Furrow Hat gives you options for four different design details to mix and match as you please. Knit it in Shelter or Quarry; choose a beanie fit or add height for a slouchy silhouette; split the garter brim or work it in the round; add a jolly top loop — or don’t. The rhythmic cable and moss-stitch motif is easy to memorize as you work up to the crown decreases. Worsted and chunky-weight versions are charted separately.
