A rich tangle of intertwined cables adorns the crown of this sport weight slouch cap in three sizes (S/M/L) with two cable pattern options. But don’t be fooled by the visual complexity—the pattern is composed mainly of simple, repetitious cable crossings that are easy to keep track of and execute.
The allover cable-and-rib fabric provides a snug fit that stays in place; the cap depth is easily adjusted for those who prefer a short length or who desire a deeper, folded brim.
