This pattern is currently only available as part of Knitworthy 5.

Knitworthy 5
The collection features 8 patterns intended to make good gifts for everyone on your knitworthy list (because life’s too short to knit for anyone who doesn’t love what you make). Patterns from the collection will be sold individually on the 17th of December.

Everyone needs a cabled hat and this one combines classic looks with fun to work crown shaping and bobbles. It’s worked in the round from the bottom up. Instructions are given for the neat beanie style or watch-cap with folded brim. The ribbing on both versions is deep enough to cover the ears, and flows into the cable pattern in a pleasing way. Bobbles not your thing? Try taking them out and working the diamonds in a textured pattern such as moss stitch. Shown in Julie Asselin’s Nurtured, a rounded, puffy yarn that gives an incredible three dimensional effect to the cables.
