FROHLOCKE is an old German word for rejoice.

The hat pattern is a fast and fun knit, perfect for a last minute gift. Having this neutral colors in my stash, I was looking for a matching cable pattern without purl stitches. Isn’t it stunning, how some cable stitches can make the difference!

There is a seamless transition from ribbed brim to cable pattern and the crown decreases are part of the pattern too. The hat is worked up quickly and the pattern is easy to memorize.

Pattern can be used for a lovely beanie in adult or children size. There are given two ways for the crown: a fast one without cable stitches (which is perfect for adding a pompom) and a slow one, which is more sophisticated.

Use neutral colors, tonal/ solid or variegated / gradient. The pattern is so addictive, I could not resist to knit three hats in one go! The pattern is worked in the round from the bottom up. Directions are given for two sizes and written in parentheses as follows: Child (Adult).
