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.
Knit in worsted weight yarn this is a quick, satisfying project. The samples shown are knit in Brooklyn Tweed Shelter in the Cinnebar and Sweatshirt colourways, but it could easily be knit in a smoother yarn to give a crisper texture.
Three sizes are provided and each is charted separately for a user friendly knitting experience.
The lovely photos were taken up in Shetland, where Ysolda is teaching at Shetland Wool Week, and it sounds like Cúram is getting a lot of use!
Congratulations to our Glenmore KAL prize winners! If you're still working on your Glenmore this blog series will stay up, so you can refer back to the tutorial for any section as you knit at your own pace. For inspiration and motivation check out all the lovely Glenmore projects here.
