Big Knitting was designed to mimic super-chunky yarn in a stockinette fabric texture, using regular DK yarn and simple rope cables. The beanie looks luxurious and thick but without the bulk (and expense) of real super- chunky yarn. A wide folded brim in a contrasting colour adds another touch of luxury and depth to this cosy wintery staple, peeking out below the cable texture.

Deluxe Pom (a separate pattern, yardage not included in hat pattern) was created to complement this design and give the illusion of super-bulky yarn strands caught in a loose pompom. The pompom is designed to be easily removable so you can style this beanie with or without.

Uses 240-260 yards of DK 8ply merino or similar. Sample shown in White Gum Wool organic merino from Tasmania, Australia (hand dyed by Nunnaba Artisan Yarn). You will need a 3.5mm and 4.5mm circular needle on 40cm cables, plus a cable knitting needle of approximately the same diameter. DPNs or a longer cable will be needed to work the crown section. Size will fit most teens/adults: measures 28cm wide at brim (to account for extra bulk with folded section) and 21cm high.
