12 Free Cable Knit Beanie Patterns Anyone Can Wear

12 Free Cable Knit Beanie Patterns Anyone Can Wear - The Knit Crew

Cable Knit Beanie: Free Patterns

Hi, fellow yarnies! I’m going to share a secret with you all. I love cable knitting. There is so much fun in the way that you can add texture to just about any project you want. Today, I’ve got 12 Free Cable Knit Beanie Patterns Anyone Can Wear so that everyone in my life and yours can enjoy a cable knit as much as me! The thing is, everyone sees this texture a bit differently, so I’ve taken the time to bring together a lot of different variations.

One really exciting thing about each cable knit beanie pattern is that you’ll learn a new way to enjoy the cable knit, too. Since they all focus on different aspects, this is going to be the intensive study that you never knew you needed.

A warm and fun hat is the perfect opportunity to really explore the potential of cabling, too. Since hats are generic, always come in handy, and are great for presents, you can’t go wrong! You can explore ones with poms or classic skull caps. Some have large cuffs on them, and others don’t. Some feature really prominent cabling, and others let it stay in the background to give you as much creativity as possible.

If you love the idea of making a free cable knit beanie but aren’t sure who to give it to, I get that. You can give these as gifts for babies, a sibling, a partner, a parent, or a friend. You can also donate these to hospices and hospitals if you want to do your part to spread some cheer, colour, and pattern!
