If you need a quick dose of cables and a fetching new hat, Pavo has you covered. Just choose your scale: a tam in Loft or a beanie in Shelter? Both hats feature a cable motif reminiscent of wrought iron finials for a satisfyingly intricate but finite knitting experience. Knit your Pavo in a jaunty bright hue like Hayloft or a pale neutral like Fossil to show the cables to maximum advantage.

(If you are wondering, the sweater shown on the female model is Michele Wang’s Abbott Pullover from the BT Winter 14 Collection.)

Needles

TAM

Size A (for Main Fabric)
One 16” circular needle and one set of double-pointed needles (DPNs) in size needed to obtain gauge listed
Suggested Size: 3¾ mm (US 5)

Size B (for Ribbing)
One 16” circular needle, three sizes smaller than Size A
Suggested Size: 2¾ mm (US 2)

Size C (for optional Tubular Cast On only)
One 16” circular needle, one size smaller than Size B
Suggested Size: 2½ mm (US 1½)

BEANIE

Size A (for Main Fabric)
One 16” circular needle and one set of double-pointed needles (DPNs) in size needed to obtain gauge listed
Suggested Size: 5 mm (US 8)

Size B (for Ribbing)
One 16” circular needle, three sizes smaller than Size A
Suggested Size: 3¾ mm (US 5)

Size C (for optional Tubular Cast On only)
One 16” circular needle, one size smaller than Size B
Suggested Size: 3½ mm (US 4)

32” circular needle can be used for either hat instead of 16” circular and DPNs if using the Magic Loop method for working small circumferences in the round.

If you have adjusted the needle size to obtain the correct gauge, it may or may not be necessary to make a matching adjustment to the needle size used for Tubular Cast On due to variance in individual work. You may wish to test your chosen cast-on method on your swatch.
