Oisin (Osh-een) by Meghan Babin is the mate to her Ailm scarf, featuring the same cables in our worsted weight Forge for a cozy, handsome beanie for all. Made with a deep, squishy fold-over brim, the cables flow naturally from the brim ribbing and decrease away seamlessly into the crown. This beanie is worked in the round from the bottom up beginning with an optional tubular cast on for a polished finish. The hat is worked from a chart through the crown decreases for a straightforward but eye-catching project.
