Knitting pattern: Burren Chunky Beanie. The Burren is a beautiful area in Ireland characterised by an ancient limestone landscape, and is visible across the sea from the Aran Islands, Ireland (where I come from!) This chunky knit hat is perfect for coping with the strong Atlantic winds! As a knitter from the Aran Islands, I love adapting the Aran style to suit modern knitters. Here, I have taken a classic Aran style cable pattern and adapted the motif to work it in the round, on one size of circular needle. The finished hat is seamless, with the cables flowing from brim to crown without interruption. The cabling pattern is not overly complicated; working a 8 stitch and 8 row repeat - I would consider this a pattern suitable for improving and intermediate knitters.The hat is knit in the round, using US10/6mm circular knitting needles, and 1 skein of 100g chunky yarn. Notions required are: Cable needle, tapestry needle (for weaving in ends), and stitch marker (to mark start of round).One size is given, to suit an adult head, but the pattern is easy to adjust as the cable pattern repeats over 8 stitches - if you want a smaller hat, cast on 8 stitches less; for a larger hat, cast on an extra 8 or 16 stitches. The pattern is also easy to adjust in length if you want a slouchier size - just work more repeats of the cable pattern before starting the crown decreases.I also have this pattern available to suit worsted or Aran weight yarn (over here: https://www.etsy.com/ie/listing/930070519/knitting-pattern-beanie-hat-burren?click_key=ee8141aa8fc65be9005615a416c08ee21072ca63%3A930070519&click_sum=cee5b53f&ref=shop_home_active_8 )The hat is seamless, as it is knit in the round, and is super soft and comfortable to wear. The beanie measures around 18 inches (47 cm) in circumference (flat, unworn) and 8 inches/21cm in height from brim to crown.The pattern has been test knitted, and the test knitters found that it was quick to work up - a bonus for any gift knitter! Thank you for looking; I have many more original knitting patterns available in my shop, which are suitable for all levels of knitters!

All my items are wrapped in crepe paper for free; if you would like sturdy wrapping for a festive occasion; please choose the gift wrapping option when ordering and let me know any special requirements (e.g. Christmas gift/birthday gift).
All of my knitted accessories (except items which have stuffing, like charms or baubles) can be machine-washed on a gentle wool wash at 30 degrees, or hand washed if you prefer. Certain items, such as cafetieres and tea-cosies, have been knitted in a more hard-wearing wool/acrylic mix: these can be washed in a regular machine wash at 40 degrees.
I aim to post your item on the following business day.
Absolutely! Just let me know the address of your gift recipient, and I will happily post it there directly, with a handwritten card containing the message of your choice.
I would recommend paying a little extra for registered post (which includes tracking) if this is a concern. If your (international) order has not arrived 30 days after shipping, please get in touch.
- I believe that wool is one of the most environmentally-friendly fibres in the world; being renewable and biodegradable. Most of my knits are made using natural fibres; with the exception of knits which need to be machine-washable (such as tea cosies).
- I take care to wrap your order in biodegradable materials (crepe paper and wool tie). Shipping bags are not always biodegradable; but this option is used when available. Shipping bags are recyclable in most countries.
- A packing slip is not included, to save on paper waste, and duplicating information already available online.

Really happy with this pattern and how it knit up. The cables are just so pretty and though I don’t love knitting cables these were well worth it. I was very happy with the crown decreases too - especially in a bulky yarn it can be hard to get those looking good and sitting nice and flat, and these were perfect.
The only thing I’d have liked is row gauge. Mine worked out perfectly in the yarn I used but I often use a different weight yarn for a pattern. It’s easy enough to adapt stitch count (and the pattern tells you how), but I’d like to know if you could add another full pattern repeat, if using a lighter yarn for example, and row gauge would help with that. But not a major problem, and I have the yarn to make more, which I’ll definitely do!

This is a great pattern and very versatile. The instructions are very clear. As an experienced knitter, after completing one repeat, I was able to knit without looking at instructions until I got to the Crown decreases. Because I wanted a smaller hat, I used smaller needles and the pattern as it is written and it worked out perfectly. I plan to make this hat again in the larger size as written. I used a tubular caston which is always my preference. I am sorry there is no picture, but I had to mail the finished hat for a birthday present and realized after it was packaged that I had not taken pictures.

I did it!! I was able to follow the pattern to create a cable. This is my first ever cable and the hat is cute. I'm going to make another one to reinforce my skill.
I do think video should show what you do after you cable in etc. Do you then knit? But I am truely a beginner
