Little Bough


A cabled beanie hat worked in the round.
The brim is 2×2 rib with a 3×2 rib every 18 sts
to fit in with the cable pattern.
This hat consists of one repeated section of V style cables
with a breaking line.
The crown is a continuation of the breaking line making five
sections which meet in the middle.Little Bough is named after the main branches of a tree.
Large branches are known as boughs while small branches are known as twigs.
