Name: AlternaTwist

Created by: Deann

A stretchy, cozy hat knit using about 100 yards of chunky yarn. AlternaTwist knits up quickly and will be keeping a lucky head warm very soon! The pattern has small, easy to work cables which will be great for a first cable project.

The ribbing helps it to stretch and fit a multitude of sizes. You can adjust the length by simply choosing to knit one or two repeats of the main stitch pattern before decreasing. 

AlternaTwist is written to be worked in the round, but can easily be converted to work flat by simply purling the stitches on the ‘wrong side’ rows. All cable crosses will take place on ‘right side’ rows.
