Knit in Arbor, Anne Jones’ Cornus is knit in the round from the bottom up and features double moss stitch with deeply textured cable panels. Offered as a close-fitting beanie or a slouchy watch cap with folded brim, make either truly your own with the instructions for a head-topping pom pom! Brooklyn Tweed considers the Cornus a level 3 out of 5 in difficulty and offers the pattern as a hard copy only, printed on quality cardstock with full-color images and detailed charts.
