The Vilja Beanie is a classic cable design for intermediate knitters, and it’s knit with bulky weight (weight category #5) yarn. In this free 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!
