This pattern has recently been redesigned, rewritten, test knitted and tech edited. The hat has been graded for sizes all the way up to adult extra large and the cocoon has been graded for two more sizes. This pattern is a companion to my Dancing Cables Hat Pattern and soon to come will be a Dancing Cables Sweater Pattern to complete the series. I do plan to make an ebook with all of these patterns when the series is complete.

The expected cost of knitting would be $60 plus yarn and shipping cost. Please contact me if you would like to be introduced to a reliable commission knitter.
