Oxidize

Oxidize features an asymmetrical cable panel that makes a basic ribbed beanie much more interesting to work, without sacrificing the things that make these beanies such a great classic. Truly my favourite kind of project, Oxidize is perfectly balanced between mindless and interesting, quick to complete, and easily adaptable to anyone’s style.

  • CONSTRUCTION

    Cables are worked with twisted slipped stitches that stand out very crisply from the background. Use either a single colour, or alternate two to give the effect of solid coloured cables against a subtly striped background (ignore references to CC and MC when working solid version). Varying the length and ease creates a fitted beanie or a loose, slouchy hat. The hat is completed with shaping worked neatly into the pattern, bringing the ribs and cable panel in to twine together at the top.

    SIZING 

    Finished circumference of approx 17[19½, 22½, 25]" / 41[48, 55, 61]cm.
    For a loose, slouchier fit, work the size closest to actual head measurement. For a snug fit, work the size approximately 2" smaller than actual head measurement: for example, for a snug hat on a 22" head work the size 19½˝. Shown in short 19½" and long 22½".

    20 sts and 28 rnds = 4" / 10cm in twisted rib pattern.
