Product description

This cabled hat is pure joy to knit and works up quickly in Shelter as either a fitted beanie or a double-brimmed watchcap. Above the ribbed brim, diamond knots filled with double seed stitch link elbows between simple cables that meet at the crown. Either hat is stretchy enough to accommodate most adult heads, so you can knit different colors for your dear ones. Add a jolly pompom for a youthful, slouchy effect.

    NEEDLES

    Both Versions:



    Size A (for Main Fabric):

    • One 16″ circular needle and one set of double-pointed needles (DPNs)* in size needed to obtain gauge listed
    • Suggested Size: 5 mm (US 8)


    Size B (for Ribbing):

    • One 16″ circular needle*, five sizes smaller than Size A
    • Suggested Size: 3¼ mm (US 3)


    Beanie only:



    Size C (optional; for Tubular Cast On only):

    • One 16″ circular needle, one size smaller than Size B
    • Suggested Size: 3 mm (US 2½)


    Watchcap only:



    Size D (for Lower Ribbing):

    • One 16″ circular needle*, two sizes smaller than Size A
    • Suggested Size: 4 mm (US 6)


    Size E (for Tubular Cast On and Turning Round only):

    • One 16″ circular needle, one size smaller than Size D

    *32″ circular needle can be used instead of 16″ circular and DPNs if using the Magic Loop method for working small circumferences in the round.


    Both Versions: If you have adjusted the needle size to obtain the correct gauge, it may or may not be necessary to make a matching adjustment to the needle size used for Tubular Cast On due to variance in individual work. Please test your chosen cast-on method on your swatch.

  • Pattern Updates

    9 April 2018: Version 2.1

    On page 8, under Begin Main Pattern, the following has been altered:

    Next Round: Work Round 1 of Skiff Chart, increasing and decreasing as indicated on chart, and working 21-stitch repeat 6 times. (126 stitches now on needle)


    9 February 2015: Version 1.1

    A missing grid line was added to Round 16 of the Skiff Chart between stitches 12 and 13, so that these read properly as two knit stitches.
