The Tidal Wave Hat begins with ribbing for a stretchy fit. Loose rolling cables alternate to transform ribbing into WOW. The cables terminate elegantly to close the top of the hat, in both a shorter version and a taller version for a perfect fit. Bulky yarn and big needles make this quick knit a breeze! It’s a great introduction to knitting cables.
Hat circumference can be adjusted by changing needle size. Ribbing is very stretchy, which means a good fit for many heads! Stretching fabric wider will make it shorter, though, so you can make the hat taller to compensate. I was happy with the fabric on a US 8, US 9, and US10 needle.
