The Bract hat makes the most of a single skein of worsted or aran weight yarn. The design emphasizes the strong lines created by the ribbing that flows from the brim of the hat into the cabled motif all the way through to the decreases. I love how crisply the decreases come together at the top of the hat, creating another layer of graphic diamonds. Fun to knit and fun to wear, Bract will be your new favourite hat!
