Today I finished knitting a rather simple cabled hat for mum. I used size 6 (US 10) needles and the yarn is Lana Grossa Uno (1 1/2 skeins). Though the yarn looks great, feels wonderfully soft and awesome to wear, it is a real pain to knit with. Still I love how the hat turned out. 😀

Simple cabled hat

As I couldn’t find a suitable pattern I made it up. Here is what I did:

CO 80 stitches

1.-5. row: *knit 6, purl 4* to end of row

6. row: *slip 3 stitches on cable needle, hold cable needle in front of work, knit 3 stitches from the left needle, now knit 3 stitches off the cable needle, purl 4* to end of row

7.-14. row: *k6, p4* to end of row

15. row: *slip 3 stitches on cable needle, hold cable needle in front of work, knit 3 stitches from the left needle, now knit 3 stitches off the cable needle, purl 4* to end of row

Repeat rows 7 – 15 once more. After that is done, work another 4 rows of *k6,p4* (or till it was the desired length) before starting to shape the crown.

Decreases:

1. row: *k2, k2tog, k2, p4* to end

2. row:  *knit 5, purl 4* to end of row

3. row: *k5, p1, p2tog, p1* to end

4. row: *knit 5, purl 3* to end of row

5. row: *k2tog, k1, k2tog, p3* to end of row

6. and 7. row: *k3, p3* to end of row

8. row: *k2tog, k1, p2tog, p1* to end of row

9. row: *k2, p2* to end of row

10. row: *k2tog, p2tog* to end of row

Cut of the yarn and thread through the remaining stitches, pull tight and sew the end in. Have fun knitting! 😀
