Notes

A cable and pom-poms variation on this little hat for my daughter. I used the angora held double, to approximate a Dk weight and cast on 64 stitches, knitting in the round.

The result is lovely and soft, like a fluffy cloud, but not too sneezy.

The ribbing is P2, K2 and the cable pattern is a very simple 6-row repeat of:
Row 1: P2, K6 repeat to end
Rows 2-5: repeat Row 1
Row 6: P2, C6F repeat to end

You could easily upsize the hat by casting on additional stitches in multiples of 8 and knitting until it is as tall as you want.

Finish using 3-needle bind off and add pom poms.
