Say ‘hello’ to your new favorite hat! The hat’s texture has long vertical faux cables with lace eyelets. The hat sits like a fitted beanie and will cover the wearer’s ears.

The knit and purl pattern used is simple enough for knitters that are venturing into more difficult in-the-round knitting while still being engaging enough for an experienced knitter. The knitter also has a choice of creating a snug fitting beanie or a beanie that slouches. No matter the type of beanie the knitter chooses to make, the garment will provide warmth and fold to fit easily in a coat pocket.
