Once upon a time, I decided to crochet a seal. When I was about to finish said seal, it became apparent that I don't actually know what a seal looks like without a reference picture. But the little seal was just so cute that I couldn't resist sharing the pattern with you all anyway. So now we can all make anatomically-incorrect seals together! And, to make it even better, I decided to make mine a Christmas seal by dressing it up with a cute red and green winter outfit. But why stop there? Change up the colors and it's totally a Hanukkah seal! Or make it extra sparkly and it's a New Year's seal! Or make it pink and it's a Valentine's seal! Seals for all occasions!!! Okay, so maybe I'm getting a bit carried away...but if being excited about holiday seals is wrong, then I don't want to be right.
No, you're not having deja-vu. You have seen this hat before. (Mostly.) Last October I posted patterns for both a crocheted Cabled Crown Beanie and a knitted Cabled Crown Beanie. But I was never quite happy with how the knit version worked out. I've since learned that when adapting a crochet pattern into a knit pattern, it needs a little bit of a different approach; the stitches behave differently. So I decided to revisit the knit version and I'm happy to announce that the new and improved version is now ready!
