Swoon Hat is a weightless and fluffy little number that’s works up quickly - perfect for the remainder of the spring hat wearing season. Knit with organic merino and silk mohair, it’s a perfect medium for chunky, classic and easy to knit cables. If you are a cable novice, this is a great first project to get your toes wet.
