Textured Cable Hat

Ok, so, I’m pretty sure this is the latest at night post I’ve ever made, but this laundry stuff got in the way today and kept me from revealing my newest design! I was going to wait until tomorrow to reveal it, but I love it so much that I just can’t wait…not even 12 hours!

There’s not really much of a purpose for this pattern; it wasn’t made out of necessity for a gift or anything, I just woke up the other morning and decided to come up with a new hat pattern. 😂 Sometimes inspirational ideas aren’t whimsical and dreamy. As a matter of fact, this one just kinda came along, knocked on the door, and wouldn’t leave me alone! That worked out pretty well for me as I’ve had the biggest brain fog lately. Hopefully this is the beginning of more good ideas to come!

Anywho, without further ado or hubbub, I give you my newest hat design!

Textured Cable Hat

  • Materials:
    • Worsted (4) Weight Yarn (Approx. 1/2 Skein of Stitch Studio by Nicole was used)
      H Hook
      Scissors
      Needle

    Only one size is available right now, but if fits everyone in my family; from my three year old to myself, but since you work off of measurements, it can easily be adjusted.

    Directions:

    Ch 8

    • Row 1: Sl st into 2nd ch from hook and across, turn. (7 sts)
    • Row 2: Ch 1, working in BLO, sl st into each of the 7 sts across, turn. (7 sts)

    Repeat row 2 until desired length or until brim measures 17″, make sure to end on an even number, join the two ends of the brim together and sl st through the back loops of each end.

    Rotate work 180 degrees so you’re working along the sides of the brim.

    • Round 1: Ch 1, sc in same stitch and in each stitch around (be sure you have an even number), join with a sl st to first sc.
    • Round 2: Ch 1, sc in BLO of first st, sc in FLO of next st, (sc in BLO of next st, sc in FLO of next st)5 times, fpdc in next 6 sts, (sc in BLO of next st, sc in FLO of next st) in the remaining stitches around, join with a Sl st to first sc.
    • Round 3: Ch 1, sc in FLO of first st, sc in BLO of next st, (sc in FLO of next st, sc in BLO of next st)5 times, sc in next 6 sts, (sc in FLO of next st, sc in BLO of next st) in the remaining stitches around, join with a sl st to first sc.
    • Round 4: Ch 1, sc in BLO of first st, sc in FLO of next st, (sc in BLO of next st, sc in FLO of next st)5 times, fpdc in each fpdc from previous fpdc round, (sc in BLO of next st, sc in FLO of next st) in the remaining stitches around, join with a Sl st to first sc.
    • Round 5: Repeat Round 3.
    • Round 6: Ch 1, sc in BLO of first st, sc in FLO of next st, (sc in BLO of next st, sc in FLO of next st)5 times, working in the fpdc from previous fpdc round, skip 3 sts, fptrc in next 3 sts, fptrc in 3 skipped sts, (sc in BLO of next st, sc in FLO of next st) in the remaining stitches around, join with a Sl st to first sc.
    • Round 7: Repeat Round 3
    • Round 8: Ch 1, sc in BLO of first st, sc in FLO of next st, (sc in BLO of next st, sc in FLO of next st)5 times, fpdc in each fptrc from previous fptrc round, (sc in BLO of next st, sc in FLO of next st) in the remaining stitches around, join with a Sl st to first sc.

    Repeat Round 3-Round 8 until hat measures about 6 inches from brim.

    To Decrease:

    • Round 1: Ch 1, maintaining pattern, *sc in next 3 sts, sc2tog,** repeat from *to** around, join.

    ***To maintain your stitch pattern on decreases, work through front and back loops as necessary.***

    • Round 2: Ch 1, *sc in next 2 sts, sc2tog,** repeat from *to** around, join.
    • Round 3: Ch 1, *sc in next st, sc2tog,** repeat from *to** around, join.
    • Round 4: Ch 1, (sc2tog)around, join.
    • Round 5: Repeat Round 4.

    Fasten off leaving a long tail.

    Weave through remaining stitches, pull to close top of hat. Secure and weave in ends.

    That’s it folks! I hope you love her as much as I do!
