I've been wanting to post this on here for quite some time now. I found the most perfect cabled hat pattern on Ravelry a while ago, but I can't seem to find it on there now! 
You need to know how to knit, purl and of course - cable!!

Cast on 52 stitches
Work in knit 2 stitches, purl 2 stitches for as long as you like to create your ribbing.

Row 1 (Row 3 + 7)
P1, KTBL, P1, KTBL *P2, K6, P2, KTBL, P1, KTBL* Repeat until last 9 stitches, then P2, K6, P1

Row 2 (Row 4 +6)
K1, P6, K2 *PTBL, K1, PTBL, K2, P6, K2* Repeat until last 4 stitches, then PTBL, K1, PTBL, K1

Row 5
P1, KTBL, P1, KTBL *P2, Slip next 3 on cable needle, knit next 3, knit 3 from cable needle, P2, KTBL, P1, KTBL* Repeat until last 9 stitches, then P2, Slip 3 onto cable needle, knit next 3, knit 3 from cable needle, P1

Repeat rows 1-8 until piece measures around 6 inches (make sure you end up on row 4)

Next
P1, KTBL, P1, KTBL *P2TOG, Slip 3 on cable needle, knit 3, knit 3 from cable needle, P2TOG, KTBL, P1* Repeat until last 9 stitches, P2TOG, Slip 3 onto cable needle, knit next 3, knit 3 from cable needle, P1 (45 stitches)

Purl next row

P1 (K2TOG) x2, K6 *(K2TOG) x3, K5* Repeat ending with P1 (34 stitches)

Purl next row

K2TOG all stitches

Purl all stitches


Sew the hat together, add your pom pom and there you have it! 
I think this pattern produces a very lovely cabled hat, so much that I've made 5 of them (some for friends, and some to keep for myself!) If you plan on making one, let me know how it goes, and if you need any further help, give me a shout!!

  2. What wool are using to make the hats and which size needles? The pattern looks really nice, would love to be able to give it a go

    1. I've been using a wool called big softie and the needles are around 10mm (but I vary from 8-10 depending on the wool thickness and overall size of the hat!)
      Hope that helps :)
