Introducing the Camden Twist Beanie!
The pattern is written in four sizes from Newborn to Child. The hat is knit in the round, bottom up, using set of DPNs or a large circular needle for the magic loop technique. The hat consists of 2x2 ribbing for a stretchy fabric, and features a simple cable.  
The pattern includes charted and written cable instructions.

Newborn, Baby, Toddler, Child.
To fit head (35.5, 40.5, 46, 51) cm / (14, 16, 18, 20)”

The pattern requires approximately (85, 108, 132, 160)m / (94, 118, 145, 175) yards 4 ply / fingering weight yarn.

Gauge:
48 st / 42 rows per 10 cm / 4” in 2x2 ribbing, after blocking & relaxed.

Materials:
2.75 mm needles, or size needed to achieve gauge.
(A set of DPNs or a large circular needle for the magic loop technique work equally well.)

 The pattern came about as I was knitting the Camden Twist Cardigan; I realised that the simple Twist cable pattern needed to become a hat too. The ribbed fabric is extremely forgiving & stretchy & will accommodate growing noggins for quite a while. I really enjoyed knitting with the Camden Tweed again; the yarn is deceptively bouncy, and knits up beautifully. The wee Donegal nepps in the base yarn add interest to the yarn, & the colour has a wonderful depth.
The pattern is available to download here.
