Everyone needs a go-to cabled beanie pattern in worsted weight yarn!
This hat combines two wave patterns to conjure up that feeling of looking out over the lake from a cabin. Shorter, sharper waves are driven by the stiff winds of a stormy grey sky while a few larger swells are created by the passing of a white-hulled boat.
Despite the complex appearance, every other round is a resting round – where you knit the knits and purl the purls. And for those of you who use charts, the last page of this pattern contains a handy checklist to help you keep track of which round you are working for each of the two stitch patterns.
