Cables and Lace Broomstick Hat
This hat is a play on the juxtaposition of cables and lace. The brim’s cable is dense, textured, and thick—great for keeping your ears protected in a blustering storm. The body of the hat is worked in broomstick lace, which is also textured, but light. At first glance, you might think the openwork would not be very warm, but the twisted loops of broomstick lace have little pockets of air in the center, which help trap warmth. This pattern can be found in Kristin Omdahl's Crochet So Fine.
