Tidal Beanie Pattern
This bulky weight ‘Tidal Beanie’ uses a combination of simple cable crosses to create a hat that is full of rich texture. This is a wonderful beginner cable-knitting project for anyone who is familiar with making hats, but looking to add a little dimension to their project.
Along with written instructions for this pattern, I have included a chart to follow for the body of the hat, depending on your preference.
