The Coffee Bean pattern is as rich in texture and detail as the smell of a well-brewed coffee! Designed to show off the beautiful and soft tweed wool, this earflap hat is a tempting mixture of simple twisting cables and a wide rib. Starting with the earflaps, the Coffee Bean is knit from the bottom up, finishing with a beautiful tapestry of cables on the crown and an optional pom pom for flair. The best part about this hat are the I-cord loops at the base of the earflaps: this allows the flaps to be hooked onto buttons sewn onto the sides and worn up if desired.
This pattern could be knit by an adventurous beginner knitter due to the cables, however, the cable pattern is easy to pick up and is surrounded by a simple stockinette rib. Because of the comfortable, stretchy nature of the wide rib and cable combination, this cozy hat will last through a child?s many growing seasons.
