In Celtic, the name Vardon means “From the green hill.” The rolling cables remind me off all the lovely green pictures you see of Celtic nations. Beautiful! I adore cables, so this beanie is a great treat to wear, for either gender, and a pompom is optional. (Curt wishes for a pompom on all his hats and therefore it had to have one. Dorky, but we all adore him for it!).
Worked in the round, Vardon consists of both written directions and charts. The pattern features 2 adult sizes; Small, & Large, which makes it perfect for gift-giving. The pattern includes detailed instructions for the techniques used. Vardon contains a hat worksheet, so you know how to measure your head to achieve a perfect fit.
