Year of Hats: October Hat

Is there a better month in the year than October? We think not! The leaves are changing, the air is crisp and clean, and firewood is stacked and ready for the first fire of the season. October is perfect hat knitting and wearing weather, so grab your needles and get ready for the October Hat in our Year of Hats series! Designed by Sloane Rosenthal, the October Hat features Sloane’s signature modern cables, a deep folded up brim, an optional tubular cast on, and an adorable pom pom. As usual, we complete the look with a custom Kelbourne Woolens leather tag. Those familiar with Sloane’s designs will already know she has a thing for cables, and she’s quite clever with making them flow seamlessly out of ribbing. Check out our cabling without a cable needle tutorial here, and watch your October Hat cables fly off your needles in no time. We think this essential unisex hat is the perfect fall/winter hat for anyone! As for month’s past, we’ve assembled a kit for the October Hat, which includes:

• 1 skein of Germantown in Oxford Blue • 2 butterflies of Perennial in midnight and raspberry • 1 Kelbourne Woolens custom leather label
