It’s true! The magic is in the way this simple rectangle is folded and seamed to create a unique and wearable bag.

#9. Cable Cross Hat Free Knitting Pattern from Universal Yarn has beautiful and highly textured cables twisting up from the bottom up the hat. It’s knitted in the round using 2 skeins of Universal Uptown Super Bulky Yarn.
