Winter project – Cable knit beanie

Ultra fast and easy if you already know how to cable knit, otherwise it’s also pretty good to learn how to cable knit!

All you need is 2 different colours of yarn (or you could try to add more colours and go for rainbow!) and you also need to know how to make a pompom. I will write up a tutorial during the weekend on how to make your pompom using nothing but cardboard, yarn and a bit of patience!

And this is the final result! It’s perfect to keep your ears warm and I really love the look of it! I made a bunch for my family for Christmas last year, you can vary the colours but personally I like to keep the initial rib the same colour as the pompom.

      Thanks! πŸ˜€ This is actually a good pattern to learn. You do ribbing at the bottom (it’s used a lot for edges) then cable knitting for the rest (it’s actually not as complicated as it looks!). Good luck!
