Purke Hat

In mid-June, amidst the excitement of the College World Series, I became captivated by the TCU Horned Frogs and their freshman pitcher. After watching them almost make it into the finals, I couldn't help but name this hat pattern - one I worked on in the stands during the game, even - after Purke. Knit with worsted weight yarn, this hat is available sized from small toddler up through adults. And with the simple cabling design to break up the stockinette, it's perfect knitting for road trips, charity, and last-minute gifts.
