Crochet - Winter's Armor Cabled Hat

​Crocheted in the round in an interesting textured pattern that really insulates because the cables and post stitches trap in an extra layer of air. Made with a thick aran yarn and size H hook, fits adults and teens. 

​Materials Needed:

4-5 ounces of Aran yarn. Or 5-6 ounces of worsted weight. I used Peace Fleece in the sample hat. Size H (5.0mm) hook. Use worsted weight yarn and size G hook for preteen size.

Size: Adult or teen, preteen.
