A cute round baby head deserves a fancy cabled hat like this to keep it warm. This one is knit in the round with a great diamond cable pattern that changes to a simple cable as it travels up the crown. Easy decreases and a ribbed border give it its great shape.

The small cables gather at the top to create a pretty floral pattern.

Optional ear flaps and ties are knit on after. Smallest size requires only one ball of lusciously soft Debbie Bliss Cashmerino yarn.

A fast project with great appeal!
