Ysolda Oxidize PDF
Ysolda's Oxidize hat features an asymmetrical cable panel that makes a basic ribbed beanie much more interesting to work. Cables are worked with twisted slipped stitches that stand out very crisply from the background. Use either a single colour, or alternate two to give the effect of solid coloured cables against a subtly striped background (ignore references to CC and MC when working solid version). Varying the length and ease creates a fitted beanie or a loose, slouchy hat. The hat is completed with shaping worked neatly into the pattern, bringing the ribs and cable panel in to twine together at the top.
