Pattern Notes

With the exception of Rounds 1 and 2, in the main section, chains are not counted as stitches. From Round 3 onwards, chains will stay on the inside of the beanie and be invisible.

Each row of FPdc is worked over the previous row, hiding the ch-1 sp between each st, except for the CC row after the cable, which stays hidden.

Do not fasten or cut yarn until completion. Each round will alternate between MC and CC.
