Bordeaux Cabled Hat features a bold, 18-stitch cable that can be worn toward the side or centered. It can be made with a slight slouch or as a classic, non-slouchy beanie. The design is unisex and makes a perfect stuff-in-your-bag sort of hat, even with the elegant cable. Plus, bulky yarn makes it good gift knitting!

Although there are some decreases while cabling, it is still a good project for someone just learning to cable. Cable instructions are provided both on a chart and as written instructions. Please swatch. “Bulky” is a VERY wide variety of yarn weight, so even a slight different in gauge may result in a very differently sized hat. All sizes of this pattern have been thoroughly tested.

Skill Level: Intermediate. Requires joining to work in the round, simple cabling techniques, decreases while cabling to shape the crown, and decreasing multiple stitches to one.

Materials:
• 99-121 yds/90.5-111 m bulky yarn (shown in Ella Rae Chunky Superwash, 100% wool, 121 yds/100 grams, 24 Raspberry Heather)
• 4.5 mm/US 7 circular needles for brim, or size needed to obtain gauge
• 8.0 mm/US 11 circular needles, or size needed to obtain gauge
• 2.5 mm/US 1B crochet hook for crochet cast on (optional, may opt for knitted cast on)
• yarn needle

YARN NOTE:
Based on tester feedback, Lion Brand Jiffy is not a recommended yarn, as it works up too large in the hat even when gauge is met.

Testers:
Thank you very much to the following Ravelers for testing this pattern. Without your feedback, this pattern would not be so clear, would contain many silly errors, and the sizes would be theoretical:
