I designed this hat to go with my Here and There Cables Scarf by Norah Gaughan. I wanted something snug so that it wouldn’t ride up but thick and bulky to keep me warm while waiting for the bus. And this time of year cables are a must.
After playing around with charts/swatches until it worked I ended up with a staggered cable pattern that reminds me of the graphic circles in the “mod” retro fabrics that Ikea has been selling lately:
I like it.
And I even figured out how to upload/host/make available the .pdf file of the pattern! Click here to download for your very own:
Mod Cable Hat Pattern
Very exciting. And yes, I did draft the included chart in AutoCAD...
Also - this hasn't exactly been test knit so if anyone finds any issues with the pattern please let me know!
EDITED TO ADD:
The first line of the instructions was wrong… it should have read “Purl 3, Knit 3” and not “Knit 3, Purl 3.” I changed the file so it’s correct now I just wanted to warn everyone who may have already downloaded it. Sorry for the confusion! Oh and I’m working on a matching mitten pattern now so that should be available pretty soon…
