This little cap, worked in a sportweight, 2-ply version of Gulf Coast Native, yields a more delicate cabled hat than Clara, the version made in 3-ply. This little hat cups the head and stays snug with a deep, turned-up ribbed brim. Block the cap, if you must, but I love the depth of the textures as they are right off the needles. And if you like pom-poms, this hat is the perfect candidate for one.
