Eclipse Beanie Pattern
This bulky weight ‘Eclipse Beanie’ uses a combination of different sized, right and left leaning cable crosses. The cable stitches come together to form a circular design that I think resembles a lunar eclipse.
Along with written instructions for this pattern, I have included a chart to follow for the body portion of the hat, depending on your preference.
