Brooklyn Tweed is one of our favorite sources for beautiful patterns. And Jared Flood, the designer behind the brand creates some of the best. This beautiful cabled hat is no exception. And we think that it would be a perfect choice for a holiday knit. This is Rosebud. Katie knit this up with a skein of Swans Island Natural Colors Merino Worsted. Each skein of this ultra soft organic merino 3 ply worsted yarn has 250 yards giving you more than enough to do either version of the pattern (slouch or beanie).We love this pattern because it combines easy reverse stockinette and a chunky cable. These elements provide for some visual interest as well as a not too tricky challenge for knitters eager to cast of for a project that will be both interesting and quick.We have some beautiful colors in the Swans Island Worsted, as well as some other suggestions if you'd prefer a superwash option. We look forward to seeing you soon.
