This cabled beanie is just the ticket to keep out the chill on those crisp autumnal strolls. Barberry is an ode to cables and it is such joy to watch them emerge from your needles and twine their way along your fabric to finish at the crown.

Adult Medium
Length: 23 cm / 9 inches
Brim circumference: 47 cm / 18.5 inches

Designed to be worn with 5-10 cm / 2-4 inches negative ease.

Note: Due to the large cable repeat, Barberry is only available in one size. However, you can always change the size by switching needles. Go down a needle size for a smaller hat and up a needle size for a larger one. This yarn is so bouncy, that is will easily accommodate the difference in gauge.

This hat is worked in the round, from the bottom up. The ribbed brim is interspersed with cables, which then interlock and snake their way along the main fabric of the hat and end just before the
crown shaping begins. All those cables make this a wonderfully engaging pattern to knit.

Cables have both charted and written instructions. Please note that, due to the seamless nature of the cable design, you will need to move the markers on a few rounds of the chart.
