Classically Cabled Beanie in Evergreen

Well, I've created yet another accessory that I won't be able to wear until winter.  Oh well.  I still think it's pretty!  I created this little beanie with the woods in mind, which you can see from the pine tree like cabling all around it!  It's incredibly easy to make once you get the hang of some basic cabling techniques, and the finishing takes hardly any time at all.  This is a good thing, since I absolutely despise finishing my projects.  All you have to do with this particular hat is weave through a few remaining stitches at the crown, and then weave in a couple loose ends, and it's ready to wear!
