Crossover Cable Hat

The cable pattern used in this hat starts out with ordinary 2 over 2 cables. But then each of the cables shares a stitch with the cables on either side of it, resulting in branches that intertwine from bottom to top. Instructions are included for reducing the height of the hat slightly if you prefer.

The stitch patterns are presented in written format only.
