Huaraz is worked from the top down making it easy to customize the depth of the crown. Worked at the gauge given it will fit anywhere from 20-23.5" head. Small adjustments to the gauge will make the hat larger or smaller. Of the four versions that I made the white hat in Malabrigo Twist is the largest and will fit a very large head. The grey hat worked in Yarn Candy Sweet Fiber Cashmerino Worsted is the smallest and would fit an older child or small adult. The red hat (Brooklyn Tweed Shelter) and teal hat (Patons Classic Wool) are worked at the gauge and size indicated in the pattern.
Instructions for the cable pattern are given in both written and charted form.
A very special thank you to the Lad's friend D for not complaining when she walked into the house and minutes later found herself in front of the camera, jumping and dancing at my command.
