This cushy cable-panelled beanie was inspired by and uses a single skein of Indigo Moon Yarns’ delicious Studio Edition Worsted Merino in the colour “Solstice Moon”. It works up quickly - whether you’re new to cables or a seasoned expert. It’s also a great way to dive into cabling without a needle – try it, you just might love it!

Worked in the round from the brim upward, the instructions are fully written and charted. Want it slouchier? Just work the ribbed brim for an extra inch or so before starting the cables.
