Spyglass Beanie Pattern

This worsted weight ‘Spyglass Beanie’ uses a combination of right and left leaning cable crosses. The cable stitches come together to form a hat that is just full of rich texture and a design of small circles and twists.

Included with this pattern are instructions in both written and chart form, depending on your preference. The brim of the hat is 5” (13cm) long and then folded in half. Feel free to remove brim rounds for an unfolded brim if you prefer. For knitting a standard brim, I recommend knitting the brim rounds for 2” (5cm) before moving onto the body of the hat.
