The Cable Trapper Beanie is a lightweight, unisex accessory that’s overly textured and fun to wear! It features eye-catching, twisting cables that emerge from the crown and effortlessly work their way down the ear flaps. Long braided straps accent the bottom of the beanie and allow you the option to tie for extra warmth on those bitter, cold days.

The pattern includes easy to follow instructions for 6 sizes (ranging from baby to large adult) and a video tutorial so there’s no confusion!
