Brixter Hat Pattern

I have a new hat pattern in my Ravelry shop and I'm pleased as punch to share it with you today. This is Brixter, a dk weight unisex beanie sized for babies and adults alike. With any luck you could probably squeeze 2 hats out of one skein of my Yellow Label DK Weight yarn. Perfect holiday knitting!
Brixter has classic lines and loads of crispy-crisp texture that I love. Simple knit and purl stitches with a dash of evenly spaced cables really appeals to the symmetry loving neat freak that's hiding somewhere within me. I could put this texture on everything, but I figured I'd start with a hat and go from there! Just don't be surprised if a sweater pops up featuring this stitch pattern in the future.
The best part of every hat? A perfect star on top as the decreases work neatly together.
