Cable Rib Hat

From the designer: "As a twist on the classic ribbed beanie, this knit hat pattern can be made with or without a hole in the top for a messy bun or ponytail. Your messy hair bun acts as a pompom for a fun, original, and very practical look. The brim features a vertical cable pattern, adding extra structure to this snug-fitting beanie. Instructions for both versions are included in this pattern. With sizing from newborn through adult large, this is the perfect hat for anyone on your gift list. This printable PDF pattern includes step-by-step instructions and helpful tips for knitting cables."
