Featuring classic cables gently growing from soothing garter, Peck on the Cheek is a cute wee hat with a slight beret shape and a jaunty feel.

The simplicity of the cable and garter combination provides gorgeous texture and a relaxing knit.

Knitted from the top down, Peck on the Cheek begins with a fun I-cord detail and simple flower motif at the crown and nips in to a fitted garter brim.

Peck on the Cheek is designed to use just 50 g of precious sport weight yarn and is a pattern perfectly suited to experienced knitters and those eager for a challenge.

The pattern includes both written and charted instructions with links to step-by-step photo instructions.
