Pattern update: All my previously free patterns have moved to my Etsy shop where they can now be purchased as PDF’s! I felt like it was time to start growing my business and giving more credit to my designs and hard work. So I hope you find your way to my shop, and thank you for all the love and support you guys have shown me so far on my maker journey!

Direct link to purchase this pattern on Etsy:

The Vilja Beanie is a classic cable design for intermediate knitters, and it’s knit with bulky weight (weight category #5) yarn. In this pattern you’ll find full written instructions on how to knit the beanie from start to finish. Once you get through the double brim it only takes you 5 cable turns + the decreases and voilà, your beanie will be all ready to go!

If you share a picture of the beanie on Instagram, please tag me @katimaariaknits and use the hashtag #viljabeanie – I can’t wait to see your designs! You may also sell the finished product but please give credit to the designer.
