28 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) over Cable Pattern. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Beautiful and easy Reviewed by Barbara Walpole on 2011-08-12 *****
Just finished this hat and it's beautiful. The crown shaping works in nicely with the cable pattern for a smooth transition. I used circular needles as far as possible. Cable pattern is easy to follow with excellent results. Love it...Love it!!!
