Starter Cable Scarf & Hat -- Hat

June 2012
Bulky (7 wpi) ?
US 11 - 8.0 mm
62 - 101 yards (57 - 92 m)
Baby, Child, Adult

If you haven’t knit cables before, this is a terrific set to get you started. Since the cable row is worked only every 10 rows and the pattern uses bulky yarn, you’ll have this hat and scarf finished in no time. The scarf is truly easy because it is worked flat. The hat is considered intermediate project, because it is knit in the round. However, it has no seams to stitch! Chances are excellent that you’re going to fall in love with knitting cables!

Skill Level: Intermediate

Sample knit in the Adult size. The fabric is very stretchy because of the cables. If a snug adult hat is desired, work the child size and add an inch or so to the initial ribbing for additional length.
