Posted on December 04, 2017 by Lorene Eppolite | 0 Comments

 

Description

The Champagne Cables Hat features one of the most popular crochet cable patterns - one that shows off the amazing effects you can get with cables, without too much effort!

This hat is worked from the top down. Tamara will show you how to set up the cables, how to turn them into a face-framing ribbon and how to add the optional pom-pom.
