Cabled And Fringed Hat

Lion Brand® Superwash Merino Cashmere

GAUGE:

17 sts + 25 rnds = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st worked in rnds (k every rnd).

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.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

3/3 LC (3 over 3 left cross) Slip 3 sts to cable needle and hold in front, k3, then k3 from cable needle.
Cable Cast On Make a slip knot on left needle. Knit 1 st through slip knot, but do not drop slip knot from left needle; transfer new st from right needle to left needle - 2 sts on left needle. *Insert right needle between first 2 sts on left needle; wrap yarn and pull through (as if knitting a st); transfer new st to left needle. Repeat from * to cast on desired number of sts.
M1 (make 1) An increase worked by lifting horizontal thread lying between needles and placing it onto left needle. Knit this new stitch through the back loop - 1 st increased.
ssk (slip, slip, knit)Slip next 2 sts as if to knit, one at a time, to right needle; insert left needle into fronts of these 2 sts and knit them tog - 1 st decreased.

FINISHING
Fringe

Attach 3 columns of fringe to centerline of Hat, as follows:
1. Beg each column of fringe just above ribbing at center back of Hat and end each column in first rnd of crown shaping at front of Hat.
2. Cut strands of yarn approximately 8 in. (20.5 cm) long. For each fringe, fold a strand in half. Use crochet hook to draw fold through Hat, forming a loop. Pull ends of fringe through this loop. Pull to tighten. Trim fringe evenly.

 

Ties
Cut three 24 in. (61 cm) strands of yarn. With crochet hook, draw strands halfway through center edge of one Earflap. Divide strands into 3 groups of 2 strands each and braid. Knot end of braid. Make a braid on remaining Earflap.
Weave in ends.

I like the idea for the hat, but I find the pattern poorly written. I took the basic premise and adapted it.
