Big Waves Beanie Pattern
I designed this hat as a follow up to my bulky weight ‘waves beanie’ pattern. This super bulky weight, cabled beanie is a fairly quick project to work up. And, it is also very beginner friendly for anyone learning to cable knit. The texture comes from only left-leaning cable crosses which are staggered to create a waves effect.
Included with this pattern are instructions in both written and chart form depending of your preference.
