Starting with a stretchy cast on and worked in the round, this hat features some simple cables that remind me of the wrought iron gate at the side of a park near home.

About the Designer: Mary E. Rose
Mary learned to knit as a young child and it has had an impact on her life ever since. As a teen, when her friends were getting jobs at fast food restaurants, Mary worked at her LYS, where the hours and working conditions were much better.
As with many knitters, when she couldn’t find patterns for what she wanted to knit, she started designing her own.
