The hat is really cosy to wear during the coldest of days.

I wore this hat on a trip to the snowy mountains in Greece and was really happy with it.

Cable Beanie Knitting PatternCable Knitting For Beginners

This pattern is for advanced beginners, who are looking to knit their first cable stitch pattern.

The hat is knit in the round, therefore you should be comfortable knitting in the round before you start this pattern.

The cable stitch used in the pattern is C4F – Cable 4 forward.

The abbreviation used in this pattern is explained below:

  • C4F – Cable 4 forward.
  • Slip the next two stitches onto a cable needle and hold at the front of the work.
  • Knit the next two stitches from the left-hand needle and then knit the two stitches on the cable needle.

This hat was knit on size 15mm (US 19) 16″ circular needles.

The yarn I used for the hat was The Wool in the colour Bordeaux from We Are Knitters.

This is 100% Peruvian wool and you only need one skein to make the hat, with a little leftover.

So if you wanted to make and add a pom-pom, you would have enough with one skein.
