American terminology

This can be worn with either side facing out. One side will “expose” cable strands, the other will be “smooth”. It can be done with as many different colors as you choose. It can be as long or short as you wish it to be.

It’s also easy to play around with the spacing between the cable strands to come up with different looks, like the fourth and fifth pictures.

The sixth picture is of the spiraling cable strands. The previous ones are all with straight cable strands.

The seventh picture is the stitch placement of the sc to get spiraling strands, the eighth picture is the stitch placement to get straight strands. Note the difference between these two pictures of where the hook is placed in relation to the sc body from the previous row!!!

Can be made with one, two, three colors. The choice is yours!

I used a US-K10.5/6.5 mm hook as I thought the L hook was a bit too big for the yarn. But I think the K is a bit too small, so it made a “denser” hat that is probably better for the cold weather anyway!

Please let me know if you have any problems or questions!

A new PDF has been posted, with the correction to Round 6 included, and a couple more pictures to ensure the correct placement of the new sc stitch in relation to the previous rounds. That is the determining factor for getting spiral or straight cable strands!


Kim Ethridge has designed a companion scarf for this hat, Reversible Strand Scarf. Check it out! :D
