This hat is knit flat and then seamed after knitting. Being 100% Undyed Silk, it is extrememly kind to your skin. It is often chosen for patients undergoing chemotherapy. Do keep in mind that silk is less elastic than wool, so the fit of this hat is meant to be fairly relaxed. The multiple rows of cables give it loads of visual appeal. The kit includes the Cable Hat pattern and the yarn required to complete the project. Now available in colours!
