Warmest winter hat

When my college age grandson asked for a warm winter hat, I made him this hat in Stone Soup Worsted, and we both loved it. When I blocked the hat, the yarn softened and relaxed, making a warm fabric while still keeping the stitch definition for the cables. No itch for him, and I loved the look of the hat for me as well. I made the full hat for him, and a shorter beanie for my son in law.
