Homebound

Homebound is a delightful hat with intertwined cables that travel up the hat, like a path through the forest on your way back home after a chilly adventure. We often walk in the river valley here in Edmonton, where the path consistently slopes in various directions, similarly to the cables of this intriguing toque.

 

Description

Worked in the round, Homebound contains written directions and charts. When the crown becomes too small to continue, you’ll switch to the magic loop method or DPNs.
