Juniper Windows

After a year off to recover from that afghan, we're back into the free pattern business! Wait, is it "business" if it's free? WHATEVER! We're just happy to show you the first of six patterns we'll be releasing this year, Juniper Windows.

Juniper Windows - both versions

Juniper Windows - short version

Juniper Windows is a fun hat with a cabled pattern I’ve wanted to try for a while; it reminds me of the 120-year-old windows of the house my husband’s family used to own in South Bend, on Juniper Street.

There are two versions of this pattern in one; for a long hat with i-cord, follow as written… and for a shorter (“normal sized”) hat simply take out the section with rows 26-61, throw a few more decreases at the top and cinch it shut rather than do the i-cord.

Juniper Windows - long version

This pattern is charted only, and probably wouldn’t be great for a first-time hat or cable knitter, but the adventurous intermediate knitter should be able to handle it, and of course the advanced knitter should be able to whip one out.
