“Kupol” is Russian for “dome,” and this hat got its name because as I was improvising the cable in my own handspun, it reminded me of the onion domes of Orthodox churches.

This slightly slouchy hat is worked from the brim up, with the cable growing organically from the ribbing. While the cable is set on a background of reverse stockinette, it frames an area of garter stitch.

The following skills are required to complete this hat:
- work in the round
- work a cable pattern from a chart or written directions
- do decreases in both knit (k2tog, ssk) and purl (p2tog, ssp)
- work cables with or without a cable needle

Notions needed: three stitch markers, cable needle, yarn needle

The cable is both written and charted.
