This pattern is also available in Knitworthy 4.
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.
