If you need a quick dose of cables and a fetching new hat, Pavo has you covered. Just choose your scale: a tam in Loft or a beanie in Shelter? Both hats feature a cable motif reminiscent of wrought iron finials for a satisfyingly intricate but finite knitting experience. Knit your Pavo in a jaunty bright hue like Hayloft or a pale neutral like Fossil to show the cables to maximum advantage.

The sweater shown on the female model is Michele Wang’s Abbott Pullover from the BT Winter 14 Collection.

Beanie

Size A (for Main Fabric)

  • One 16″ circular needle and one set of double-pointed needles (DPNs)* in size needed to obtain gauge listed
  • Suggested Size: 5 mm (US 8)

Size B (for Ribbing)

*32” circular needle can be used instead of 16” circular and DPNs if using the Magic Loop method for working small circumferences in the round.

If you have adjusted the needle size to obtain the correct gauge, it may or may not be necessary to make a matching adjustment to the needle size used for Tubular Cast On due to variance in individual work. You may wish to test your chosen cast-on method on your swatch.

Finished dimensions

  • Beanie: 21″ [53.5 cm] circumference at brim and 9″ [23 cm] length
