The Colmena beanie is worked back and forth and then seamed together. It’s hexagonal structure is accomplished by the simple combination of knits, purls, slipped and dropped stitches that create a cabled texture without even requiring a cable needle! It’s big and chunky, so you’ll knit it in no time. And so cozy that it’s a perfect companion for cold winters!
