The Bridgeland Beanie has all your holiday gifting needs covered, with five sizes from baby through adult, and instructions for two fit versions. The shorter version (the brown sample) is snug to the head and welcomes the addition of a pompom, while the taller version (grey sample) has a more modern feel. The cables are created using slipped stitches to produce the long, diagonal stitches you see throughout the body of the hat. The Bridgeland Beanie is a fun knit, starting with the sea of stockinette in the brim and finishing with the simple 6-row cable repeat that comprises the body.
