Everyone needs a cosy, slouchy beanie. Bronntanas features a very simple honeycomb cable pattern on a garter stitch background that highlights subtle hand dyed yarns beautifully. Cables and slipped stitches create a three dimensional pattern with shadowed areas that make it look much more complicated than it really is. The vast majority of rounds are simply knit or purl. The hat is worked in the round from the bottom up and given in four sizes to fit children and adults.
Double knitting or light worsted weight yarn with a soft hand, some elasticity and good drape.
