This chunky cabled beanie is perfect for romping in the forest making trouble with pixies. The design inspiration is right from the woods whether you see leaves, petals or feathers.
The decreases are cleverly worked into the pattern making the entire hat a wee work of art. It is fairly stretchy and has a very slightly pointed peak.
This hat is knit from the bottom to the crown in one piece with a bulky weight yarn. This hat has one size and no visible seam.
