KNITTING PATTERN PDF - NOT A KNITTED ITEM. You will receive an instant PDF download via etsy. The pattern is not currently available in hard copy on etsy. Due to the nature of PDFs, I regret that I cannot offer refunds.

Asher is a fun, textured, slightly slouchy hat to keep you warm all winter. It is sized for children and adults, and suitable for men and women alike. Knit in aran weight yarn on larger needles, Asher works up quickly. With a pattern that looks complex, but is easy to memorize, you’re sure to find yourself making several of these in different colors for the whole family.

The pattern is suitable for advanced beginner cable knitters. Please see specific required skills below. Instructions are both written and charted. The pattern has been professionally tech edited to reduce the possibility for error, but if you have questions or believe that you have found an error, please contact me.
