I love how this yarn turned out. It’s People Eater purple and white/natural. I dyed it so the color gradually shifts from purple to undyed. The hat pictured is knitted with my Gamma bulky weight yarn. There is just enough yarn in 1 skein to complete this hat with a little left over.
This pattern is inspired by a short story I wrote. I think the cables look a bit like mermaid tails.
The cables are simple. I prefer to knit this hat on double pointed needles and not use a cable needle, but you can start on circulars and use a cable needle.
