I love how cables can twist and turn in unusual ways. This beanie is knit from the top down for an easily adjustable fit, with a stylish cable pattern on either side that grows along with the hat. The design is unisex, suiting men and women equally well, and it makes a great gift. Cable pattern is charted only.
