Huskers Hat Knitting Pattern


A beautiful combination of cables and colorwork, the Huskers Hat echoes the continuous gentle movement and layers of texture ever present in the vast midwestern cornfields. Squishy foldover ribbing makes it warm and cozy, ideas for the frigid winter months filled with frostbite advisories and whiteout snow squalls. The Huskers Hat is sized to fit the whole family, and two contrasting skeins of yarn will make two hats with the colorways reversed. Knit one for yourself and another for your favorite person. Once you decide who you’ll be twinning with, the only question remaining is to pom or not to pom.
