The Alexander Cable Beanie features unstructured lattice style cables that add texture and interest to your hat as they flow into each other. The cabled design on a canvas of knit stitches is a fresh take on classic cabled styling that can easily be worn by both men and women. This hat is soft, cozy, and warm – and can easily be completed over a weekend. Instructions are included for 4 sizes, so you can make one for everyone in the family!
