What a fun hat pattern to knit up quickly with some super squishy wool. The wool is from Andrea's shop - tributary yarns. This wool has a lovely hand and the twist is perfect, I highly recommend this worsted weight wool.
Tin Can Knits have an array of patterns that are great for beginners and intermediate knitters. This pattern incorporates easy cabling and knitting in the round. The pattern has written and charted instructions.
