Pattern for “It goes both ways” beanie

$6.00 tax incl.

Description

This pattern produces the beanie which is part of the “It goes both ways set.” As I knit the columns of in and out arrows, I thought about how often our relationships involve giving and receiving. A healthy relationship doesn’t leave you fully drained because it is constantly replenishing you. This hat knits up slightly slouchy using just one skein of Subte Yarn (Neighborhood Fiber Co.). The cable pattern is provided in written and chart form. Please check out the matching “It Goes Both Ways” fingerless mittens and boot cuffs.
