Winding Road Beanie
The Winding Roads Hat (firstly named Kyokuro Boushi) is inspired by all the twisting and winding roads up in the Aso mountains in the Kumamoto prefecture of Japan. The thicker cable pattern represents the more commonly travel roads, with its broad and long-stretching turns, while the eyelet pattern mimic the smaller and less commonly known side detours. This hat can be knitted up in about two days and makes for an enjoyable and easy project, great for both beginner and advanced knitters.
