Great quick knit for a holiday gift, or just something to gift yourself as the temperatures are dropping. It is a fun knit and is what I would consider an experienced beginner pattern. This is a slipped stitch technique so it will require a cable needle.

This hat pattern was originally created in the Jimmy Beans Wool’s Limited Edition August Semi-Precious Tosh Bloodstone color, which is now sold out. However, it will work perfectly in any solid, variegate, or speckled skeins you have lying around.
