Braided Cable Hat
In small, medium, and large sizes, this hat will be a favorite for everyone in your family. It’s quick to knit and the braided cable band keeps it interesting. The huge variety of colors available in worsted weight yarn makes this a good go-to pattern for gifts or to accessorize any outfit you might have in mind. Instructions are included for both the solid and two-toned versions.
The simple cable, small amount of provisional cast-on and special knit/purl grafting technique make it a good project for trying methods that may be new to the less-experienced knitter. Line-by-line instructions make the grafting a breeze.
This is my design from the Ravelympics 2010 Designer Biathlon event. Cast on during opening ceremonies, designed, tech edited, photographed, and pattern published by closing ceremonies. Whew. What a fun challenge, and I hope you’ll enjoy knitting the result!
The original hat, size medium, used about 170 yards of Cascade 220.
