Knitworthy 4
The collection features 8 patterns intended to make good gifts for everyone on your knitworthy list (because life’s too short to knit for anyone who doesn’t love what you make). Patterns will be available for individual purchase on 11 December 2017.

Liab
A classic cabled beanie worked from the bottom up in an easy but interesting pattern. A dense gauge combines with slipped stitches and cables to create a richly textured, very warm fabric. The long length works as a slouchy beanie, or fold the ribbed band up for a classic watch cap — and cosy ears. Decreases are worked into the stitch pattern at a relatively rapid rate for a slightly gathered effect at the crown that works equally well with or without the optional pom-pom.

Yarn
Shown in Rauwerk 2 ply Merino (100% wool, 240yds / 220m, 100g) in light grey

125[200, 240] yds / 115[180, 220]m
The yardage given does not include the optional pom-pom, which will take approximately 35m depending on diameter.
The suggested yarn has not been washed before spinning and will bloom when the spinning oil is removed. It’s described as a dk but after washing feels closer to an aran or heavy worsted. A standard dk yarn can be used but won’t create such a thick, cushy fabric.
