Hi everyone! I have a really fun and easy cable knit beanie pattern to share today! I’m calling it The Katelyn Beanie because it’s bright and cheery just like my youngest daughter, Katie. This is fairly beginner friendly. You do need to know how the basics of how to knit and purl.
The cable instructions are clearly noted so I think even a beginner can get through this pattern fairly easily! And there are always a ton of videos on YouTube to help you with any knit stitches as well!
I knit this hat with Legacy Fiber Artz Yarn in the Sally sock kit which comes with this soft cream accent color. I held the yarn double and I also held a strand of white mohair along with it to give it that nice halo effect! But the pattern calls for DK weight, so if you don’t want to fuss with three strands of yarn you don’t have to!
If you haven’t used mohair I highly encourage you to try it! Mixed with this soft 75/25 Merino Nylon mix the mohair isn’t itchy at all! It just gives the hat a nice soft look and makes it extra squishy!
I also added this fun faux fur pom pom that I got from a local yarn shop. If you’re in the area check out Colorful Yarns Knit shop! They always have a huge variety of fun poms!
