In Celtic, the name Vardon means “From the green hill”. The rolling cables remind be off all the lovely green pictures you see of Celtic nations. So beautiful! I adore cables, so this beanie is a great treat to wear, for either gender, and can be made with or without a pom pom (Curt wishes for a pom pom on all his hats and therefore I had to put one on. Dorky, but we all adore him for it!).
The hat is knit in the round and features both cables and a broken linen stitch. The pattern contains both written directions and a chart for your knitting preferences.
Vardon is worked in the round and the pattern consists of both written directions and charts. The pattern features 2 adult sizes; Small , and Large, which makes it perfect for gift-giving. The pattern includes detailed instructions for the techniques used.
Sample is knit in the Large size; Curt’s head is 22” round. Fits comfortably with some negative ease to keep the hat snug on his head.
