Buttercup is a worsted weight beanie hat with panels of honeycomb stitch in the front and back and a braided cable on each side. The Honeycomb panels and braids are separated by two rows of twisted knit stitches. I named this design Buttercup after my cat that passed away this summer from cancer. She was a total sweetheart and the light of my life for the past eight years.
