A perfectly intertwined cabled hat!
Well this pattern has cables within cables! There are just so many! The outer cables create almost a honeycomb effect with delicate little cables just peeking out from underneath, like they’re dancing with each other. It is a pattern that requires a little concentration but the cables are worked in such a way that they give a very intricate effect whilst remaining relatively straightforward to knit (for cables). The graceful cables carry on right to the tip of the crown allowing you to remove the pompom if they’re not to your taste.
The hat is knitted in the round and instructions are both written and fully charted for your preference.
Materials, Gauge & Sizes
Size (to fit): One size – adult, although the pattern has a decent amount of stretch and will fit up to a 58cm/23in head, but will also fit smaller due to the negative ease, its actual finished measurement is around 45cm/17¾in
Yarn Requirements: DK weight yarn. Sample used Made by Penguins 100% Merino DK yarn in colourway Unicorn (100g/200m), and took approx. 180m yarn.
Gauge: Horizontal: 1 repeat of the 20st cable pattern = 6cm / 2⅜in, lightly blocked in larger needle. Vertical: 34 rows = 10cm / 4in
The horizontal gauge (22sts) is much more important than the row gauge.
Needles: circular needles or dpns sized to obtain gauge (sample used 3.75mm / US5 and 4mm / US6)
