Pattern Description:

Classic cables and ribbing in cozy wool make the "Brennan Hat"a winner!

Inspired by a hat I saw on the show "Bones", this beanie will flatter most people. Just imagine hitting the slopes--or the mall--with this classic toque. Knit in the round from the brim up, there is no seaming and minimal weaving-in of ends.

Finished crown heights given in pattern to make adjusting easy.

Requires: 1-2 100 g/3.5 oz balls (150 m/164 yds each) of aran/heavy worsted-weight yarn. I recommend wool. The sample was knit in Knit Picks' "Andes del Campo" yarn.
