Welcome to the Dreamy Waves Beanie, a knitting pattern! Do you love cables? I do!! How about a quick pattern that has cables? I do!! I designed the Dreamy Waves Beanie using bulky weight yarn and to be made in a day. It works up quickly, is bound to turn heads, and be a compliment magnet.
I used my Takumi Combo Set in this pattern these are my go-to knitting needles. I love these smooth bamboo knitting needles and the points are sharp for using a variety of yarn.
I hope you love this fun and quick pattern! Please share with me on social media. You can follow me on Instagram HERE and on Facebook HERE! Tag me @pinkplumeriamaui and use #pinkplumeriamaui.
