The Under the Sea Hat is the perfect lightweight cabled hat from Malabrigo's Book 20: Modern Accessory Style. Roll up the brim's ribbed edge for a tight fit or leave it down for a slouchy silhouette. Great for experienced knitters. Matching cowl also available here! All patterns from the book may be made on Mechita or Sock by Malabrigo.
Gift Kit includes the book, Book 20 by Malabrigo as well as selected yarn. At Yarn Loop, we believe that you should always get yarn with your new pattern book! For yarn winding services, click here.
