Can't access the pattern, it says database error. Anyone else having this problem?

Would be challenging for beginners if they haven't worked cables before. I used straight needles and the conversion is thus even rounds work k2 p4 k2 p12. Decrease round 2 k1 p3 k2 p9. Dec rnd 4 k1 p1 k2 p6. Dec rnd 6 p1 k1 p3.

This is such a lovely hat. It is not difficult but gives you a bit of a challenge. Sometimes you need that or else it gets boring. It is a good way to practice your cable knitting as well. I always need hats in the winter so this will be on the list. Thank you.

I've been really into the dusty rose color lately, so I love this pattern! I'm still a beginner, so this might be a little challenging for me, but definitely something to work up to.

I am not really into knitting, find the patterns a little complex, but this is a cool hat, would look beautiful on a pair of jeans and boyfriend shirt. Awesome piece.Thank you!!

I really love this pattern. I like how the cable is larger at the bottom of the hat and gets tighter as it moves up the hat. That's a unique design!
