Pattern Notes: The stitch pattern featured on this beanie was inspired by the branches of the pinyon pine tree. The rich green of the pinyon pine’s needles are a sharp contrast to the desert southwest that they are found in. I wanted to keep that crisp contrast in the design and cables served that purpose best. If you’re not too keen on cables, I would recommend trying my Control Freak Cabling Without a Cable Needle (https://youtu.be/AT8lbohPVHA). It makes cabling far less painful and you don’t have to hassle with losing that annoying little cable needle. Give it a shot!
