Dashing Cable Kids Beanie
This is a classic cable beanie with double rib band and optional pompom. It is very versatile and looks great with a range of colours and yarns to suit babies to pre-teens, and boys and girls alike. This beanie makes a fantastic present and will always impress!
Cables look complicated - but do not be scared, they are very easy! Creating these cables is only a matter of moving 3 stitches onto a cable needle, holding it in front of your work for three stitches, before knitting them off, and you have done it! My pattern includes photos showing how to use a cable needle, so give it a go and learn something new!
I have made many of these beanies with $2 yarn from my discount store, and they all turned out great. 1x 100gm ball of 8ply should be enough, if you are also making a pom pom in the largest size though you will need 2 balls. Adding a faux fur pompom also looks great!
Sizes available: 6 months, 1-2 years, 3-5 years, 6-11 years
