ABOUT THE PATTERN

The Botanist Hat features simple cables that flow out of the beginning rib and continue through the decreases to the very top of the crown. Cables evoke the shoots and growth of climbing vines in a garden or forest. The five sizes use the same number of cast on stitches and follow the same directions – the only difference is the gauge of the yarn used and the number of beginning ribbing rows completed!
