Winter Walk hat will keep you stylish and warm this winter! It has beautiful meandering cables that flow from the 1x1 ribbed cuff. A dramatic cable pattern across the front, and stockinette across the back goes so quickly…before you know it you’re almost done knitting. It is written with just a little bit of stylish slouch, but if you prefer more or less, these modifications are also included. It is a very quick and enjoyable pattern to knit, and I bet you can’t stop at just one! Any type of yarn seems to shine in this stitch pattern. We had testers use speckled, variegated and tonal yarns all making incredibly gorgeous hats.

Winter Walk is both a DK & worsted weight hat pattern.
There are different needle sizes, gauges and stitch counts used for each yarn weight.

DK weight gauge is:
23 st = 10 cm/4” in stockinette
using larger needle

Worsted weight gauge is:
17 sts =10 cm/4” in stockinette
using larger needle

Hue Loco sample (blue) weighs 70g
Sweet Fiber sample (green) weighs 55 g
Fidley Dyeworks sample (grey speckle) weighs 55 g

This pattern is:

  • knit from the bottom up and measures approximately 24 cm/9½“ from bottom edge to top of crown

  • use either DK or worsted weights of yarn (both stitch counts are included)

  • has a very beautiful and easy to knit cable pattern across the front of the hat, and a stockinette back. It works up so quickly and is a perfect choice for that next gift project.

  • Instructions are given for how to easily modify the hat circumference.

  • professionally tech edited (thank you Kate!) and test knit by generous and enthusiastic knitters. Thank you all so much!

  • I hope you enjoy this pattern as much as I do. Thank you so much for checking it out.
