This pattern has been inspired from my time in Chamonix. The Chamonix Head is very warm, it has a double layer of knitting. On the inside there is plain stockinnete stitch, and on the outside a thatched cable pattern.To compensate for the cable pattern i have had to add increases and change up the needle side.

It can also be downloaded from my Blog

Here are the detains of the pattern.

You will need to know how to do
Knit, purl, increases and decreases, casting on and off and also basic cables.

Yarn
1 ball of DK or worsted yarn. I used Drops Lima (65% wool, 35% Alpaca)

Needles
4.5mm circular or set of DPNS.
7mm circular or set of DPNS.
(6mm circular or set of DPNS, if desired).
I used a 60 cm (24 inch) circular needle, so I could knit in the round. You could also you a longer one and use the magic loop method.

Gauge
19 stitches to 10cm (4inches).
