Wintergreen Beanie Pattern
The Wintergreen Beanie is a super cozy accessory for the cold winter weather. It has a bold cable design with lots of left and right leaning twists. The pattern calls for super bulky weight yarn that is a little on the lighter side. I have added a few suggestions below for yarn that is a perfect weight.
Included with this pattern are instructions in both written and chart form, depending on your preference. Also be sure to check out the matching Wintergreen Mittens pattern to complete the set.
