Originally designed for Acorn Street Shop, my favorite LYS in Seattle, this adorable pile of beanies features acorns formed by twisted stitches and cables. Most of the cables used to create the acorns require two cable needles, a technique that is simple to master yet yields wonderful stitch definition. And given the ten stitch repeat for both the acorn brim and the crown decreases, this hat is easy to size up or down just by increasing or decreasing your cast-on by ten stitches. This allows you to create cuteness for the whole family!
