Windflower Beanie Pattern
This slouchy beanie is just full of rich cabled texture. I have used two different sized cable twists, facing opposing directions, to create an intriguing design. As you knit through the decreases of the hat, you will notice that the twists are still maintained in the design, but will gradually become smaller. So, you will just be making smaller cable crosses once you get close to the end.
Included with this pattern are instructions in both written and chart form depending of your preference.
