I made another one of these knit beanie hats. The pattern is Struan By: Ysolda you can find it further down the page in the link. It's a really fun hat to knit and easy to make any size you like. This one is an XS hat for my son. It a top down knit and starts with 5 cast on stitches. Each stitch you add to the cast on it creates one pattern repeat of cables & seed stitch. The brim is a cut piece of plastic canvas. The hat is very warm. You knit the pattern to the top of the ears then you knit 4 inches of the edging and fold it under, tuck in the brim and stitch it up so there is an extra thick band around the ears.
