This is a beanie style hat, knit in the round from the bottom up. The simple, yet distinct cables make it easy and satisfying for both beginner and advanced knitters.

Pattern requires the following skills: knitting in the round on circular needles, cabling, working ribbing, decreasing.
The Twisted German Cast On method is called for but can be replaced by another if preferred. Changing it will not impact the rest of the pattern.
The cables are charted but with written instructions as well.
