A classic cabled beanie worked from the bottom up in an easy but fun to work pattern. A dense gauge combines with slipped stitches and cables to create a richly textured, very warm fabric. The long length works as a slouchy beanie, or fold the ribbed band up for a classic watch cap — and cosy ears.
Decreases are worked into the stitch pattern at a relatively rapid rate for a slightly gathered effect at the crown that works equally well with or without the optional pom-pom.

The suggested yarn has not been washed before spinning and will bloom when the spinning oil is removed. It's described as a dk but after washing feels closer to an aran or heavy worsted. A standard dk yarn can be used but won't create such a thick, cushy fabric.
