This pattern is available for $6.00.

The pattern is being tech-edited and reworked. It will be available again in Oct 2022. It will be a paid pattern then.

This is a cabled hat worked seamlessly in the round. It can be made in two versions: one with nice earflaps with an upside-down small cable pattern or starting with 2x2 ribbing. After completing ribbing the hat is worked in cables. The earflaps finish with i-cord strings and small pompoms. All stitch decreases are made between the cables for neater look. At the top of the hat there is a 1½-2 inch pompom in the same colorway. The hat is great for boys as well as girls, depending on the color of the yarn. Different sizing is achieved by alterations in cable length as well as their number.
