As a twist on the classic ribbed beanie, this knit hat pattern can be made with or without a hole in the top for a messy bun or ponytail. The brim features a vertical cable pattern, adding extra structure to this snug-fitting beanie.
With sizing from newborn through adult large, this is the perfect hat for anyone on your gift list. This printable PDF pattern includes step-by-step instructions and helpful tips for knitting cables.
The Cable Rib Hat comes in 2 versions: • Classic beanie (on the left). • Messy bun with an opening at the top. Your messy hair bun acts as a pompom for a fun, original, and very practical look. Instructions for both versions are included in this pattern.
