Desert Rose

• Work cables without cable needles

• Finishing the crown

Immerse yourself in the captivating texture of Desert Rose Hat, a one-skein wonder that brings a touch of the floral desert landscape to your wardrobe. With just one skein of worsted weight yarn, knit a versatile hat that features a beautifully cabled texture reminiscent of the intricate desert rose.

Construction Overview:

This pattern is a no-fuss knit with rewarding results. You'll begin with a ribbed brim, then continue in the round, following a straightforward chart (or written instructions)  that guide you through the cabled body to the crown, designed to mimic the petals of a desert rose. It's a project with clear instructions, both charted and written, making it accessible for knitters looking to develop their skills or enjoy a quick knit.

Yarn: Knit with Magpie Quartet Worsted, this 100% Superfine SW Merino yarn is exceptionally soft and squishy with a four-ply construction for a well-defined stitch. It's a 100% domestic product, showcasing quality from a local family-owned mill. For substitutions, choose a yarn with animal fibers for softness, a nice twist for stitch clarity, and in a semi-solid or tonal color to highlight the cable work without overwhelming it.
