Through talking to another crocheter, I learned of the cable stitch and decided to give it ago. I must say, I was extremely lucky with the pattern I found to follow because her instructions and picture by picture guide were AMAZING help. I don't know if I could have figured it out without that guide.
So yeah, the above is what I came up with.
The pattern can be found at: http://www.rheatheylia.com/index.php?page=patterns&id=8
I followed her pattern completely, I did not improvise or change anything.
My thoughts on this pattern are that it it fits tight on an adult but good on a kid. I followed the 70 stitch instructions so I think 80 would be perfect for an adult. :)
Edit: I have been told that the link is not working so I wanted to share the main site to see if that can help you locate this beanie. www.rheatheylia.com :)
