Cozy up this winter in Headwind, a squishy hat featuring big, winding cables on a reverse stockinette background. Headwind works up quickly in one skein of worsted weight yarn, knit in the round from the bottom up. Its beanie and extra slouchy slouch options make it suitable for any style. Headwind was designed in collaboration with Tell Tale Yarn Co.

The cables and decreases are charted--written instructions are not available.

Finished measurements:
Circumference: 20 inches, unstretched
Slouch height: 10.5 inches
Beanie height: 8.5 inches
