Inspired by my wonderful home state of Oregon, Alderwood is the perfect little hat for exploring Forest Park, meandering along the Oregon Coast, or wandering Alder Street or in the Purl District.

Simple cable stitches (which can easily be worked without a cable needle) combine with two color stripes to create a hat with a ton of charm that is deceptively easy to knit!
