Hi, I'm the madmonkeyknitter from www.madmonkeyknits.com. This is my Fisherman's Friend Superfast Cable Beanie hat. This nautical beanie can be knitted in any superbulky/super chunky yarn and uses my Superfast technique so is 4 times faster to knit up than ordinary knitting.The pattern provides full instructions for 4 sizes XS,S,M & L so can be made for anyone from babies to adults with a head circumference between 16-24 inches. I chose a really simple cable design so you do not have to concentrate too hard. It is knitted on 8 mm needles so should not take longer than 3 hours to make including the pom-pom.
