This listing is for one 15-page Digital PDF File download with photographs for customization, and a beading photo tutorial containing instructions on how to knit this elegant beaded cabled hat in a slouchy or beanie style. Beading is of course optional. There are details for a child size (19” head circumference), and adult size (22” head circumference). This hat brim does stretch to accommodate sizes in-between or slightly larger. Two different decrease designs are also included for the top of the hat (please see listing photos for appearance details). This pattern was test knitted with success by four different testers, two of which had not cabled or beaded before using this beading technique. I’m excited to report that they all completed this hat with ease, and their hats all looked fabulous. Please Note: The beads on the body of the hat are peek-a-boo in style, as they often do not all show at the same time during wear due to the nature of the cable construction. A solid color yarn or slightly variegated color yarn is recommended so the cable design stands out to its full potential.
