The first design in the 2019 Year of Hats is the January Hat by Kelbourne's very own Courtney Kelley in Germantown yarn.
The January Hat features integrated ribbing, large diamond cables, and many, many delightful bobbles. A pom pon tops it all off.

Worthy of Note
The January Hat is worked in the round from the bottom up. Due to the traveling cable, starting with Round 3, the beginning of the round shifts to the right one stitch on odd numbered round for the first 12 rounds. The beginning of the round then shifts back on odd numbered Rounds 15–25, then back again for the top decreases. The shift is written into the pattern and the marker should always fall before the ‘k2’ of the first diamond cable motif.
