Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You will need to be able to work a simple cable with lace and pick up and work a 2x2 rib. This hat could not be easier in its construction. It is worked as a rectangle which is drawn in at the top with a ribbed hem added. There are no shapings, the combination of stitches worked to the correct tension lend themselves to this slouchy beanie design.

Pattern Description:

A slouchy, lacy, cabled beanie hat. Less than 2 balls of yarn, designed to fit both a child and an adult.

"Following this season's trend for cables and lace, this oversized beanie hat is sure to become a wardrobe staple. Worked in 100% British wool in a chunky weight and with large needles, it works up deceptively quickly." - Jo Storie
