Ledger is a stepped beanie, incorporating both 2x2 and 1x1 ribbing. Starting with a unique 2x2 ribbed cast on (tutorial available to download from here) this beanie is not only fully reversible, but also covers a wide range of sizes from 6mths through to large adult.
Pattern is worked in the round, bottom up, and is provided in written format.
