The Willow Bucket Hat features visible seaming, a braided band and simple decreases along the brim.  This fashionable accessory will keep the sun off of your skin while you shop, walk, or hang out with friends.  This is a great pattern for the adventurous knitter who is ready for cables and a little bit of shaping. 

The cable band is knit first. The crown is picked up and knit. The brim is then picked up and knit down. Cable pattern is included as written text and chart.

Knitting Kit includes pattern (pdf & printed pattern) and yarn.
