This very slouchy unisex beanie is fit for one of the seven dwarves! It is a quick bottom-up knit which introduces a few novel skills to the beginner knitter: knitting in-the-round, tubular cast-on, slip stitch, cables, braided stitch, short-rows, magic loop. Written in full with an adjunct chart for those who prefer to use such. Rated as moderately easy.
