Rhett Hat Kit
Our kit includes all the yarn you need, the pattern, and a project bag. Kit is $3 off retail price.
Rhett by Meghan Babin is a classic cabled beanie made for gatherings around fall campfires, weekend hikes, blustery days, and is a go-to hat that will surely be stuffed into coat pockets from fall through the winter. Made with a deep, squishy fold-over brim, the cables flow naturally from the brim ribbing and decrease away seamlessly into the crown.
This beanie is worked in the round from the bottom up beginning with an optional tubular cast on for a polished finish. The hat is work from a chart through the crown decreases for a simple, straightforward project that will have you itching to cast on another.
