Designer Knitting Pattern
A band of little cables in ribbing starts the pattern. These cables are a delight because they do not require a cable needle. Then after adding 6 double increases every few rows, followed by double decreases you’ll have reached the crown of the hat. At which point you continue with a tiny I-cord tab that adds the finishing touch – just like every French beret.

This light-weight DK, feels like soft and gentle baby alpaca, but cotton subtly adds an almost secret level of strength and durability. The little glow of alpaca brings pleasure to the knitting as you work, and a touch of class to the look of your finished creation.

Sophisticated, elegant, stylish, chic. After seeing James’ collection, I may give up needlepoint.

These designs take men's sweaters to a whole new level of luxury and deliciousness. Might have to get a new man once my divorce goes through, just so I can knit him a James Cox Knits sweater.
