~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Adorably warm with an unusual construction, Winding Road is the perfect quick and luxurious gift for those on Santa’s “nice” list (and maybe even for those who have been slightly “naughty.”)

This cap begins with a knitted cable band to form the brim. Once the brim is joined, stitches are picked up to knit the rest of the cap in the round.

The cable pattern is both written and charted.
