Link (printed pattern)

Link is an apt name for this modern take on the classic cabled beanie, which features bold columns of paired rope cables interconnected by branching diagonal twists. Thoughtful details — seamless transitions from the brim ribbing to the cables, hidden crown decreases, and optional tubular edges — also combine for an overall polished effect. Choose between two brim styles and top off with a jaunty pom-pom, or leave unadorned to showcase the vanishing cable motifs.
