A ribbed and cabled beanie with a brim that can be worked deep enough to fold over and pull down over your ears or left shorter for a cleaner look. Cables grow out of the ribbing with a simple cross that travels across the rib to form four bold triangles around the hat. Shaping is worked neatly into the pattern with pairs of ribs and rope cables coming together at the crown. Add a pom-pom to up the cute factor or leave it off to highlight the architectural lines of the crown.
Three sizes are provided and each is charted separately for a user friendly knitting experience.
Worsted weight yarn with good loft and a woolly texture, woollen spun wool or wool blends are ideal. A smoother yarn could be used for a crisper texture.
