Wavy Cable Hat Pattern

Cable hat with snowflake detail at the crown


$8.00 USD


Brave the cold with a timeless cable hat. Features a wavy cable pattern with thoughtful shaping at the crown and a relax fit. Wear it with the brim folded or unfolded, depending on the slouch you want.

Knit with 8 ply / DK weight yarn and comes in three size options. To see a little video of the hat being worn, check out my YouTube short from the pattern release.

Designed to be worn with up to 5 cm / 2" of negative ease, this relaxed-fit beanie is slightly slouchy, with a length 2.5 cm / 1" longer than your natural head height. However, you can easily adjust the length by knitting more or less ribbing for a different fit. This is your hat, after all.

Fit & Yarn Details

I recommend 100% wool or a wool blend for stitch definition and warmth in 8 ply / DK weight.

Actual Head Circumference: cm = 51 (56, 61) / inches = 20 (22, 24) / to fit = kids (adult, adult large)

Yarn Quantity: metres = 246 (274, 304) / yardage = 270 (300, 332)

Needles: 4 mm / US 6 for gauge and 3.25 mm / US 3 for ribbing.

Gauge: 22 sts x 28 rows in a 10x10 cm / 4x4" square in stockinette stitch

For the samples I used: The Grumpy Merino 8 ply / DK yarn. It's incredibly soft and 100% NZ made.
