16 sts = about 4 in. (10 cm) over Rnds 1-9.

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


2/2 LC (2 over 2 left cross) Slip 2 sts to cable needle and hold in front, k2, then k2 from cable needle.
2/2 RC (2 over 2 right cross) Slip 2 sts to cable needle and hold in back, k2, then k2 from cable needle.

K1, p1 Rib worked in rnds (worked over an even number of sts)
Rnd 1:
*K1, p1; rep from * to end of rnd.
Rep Rnd 1 for K1, p1 Rib worked in rnds.


1. Hat is worked in one piece in the round on double pointed needles.
2. The edge of the Hat is worked in K1, p1 Rib to create a stretchy fit, then the body of the Hat is worked in a simple cable pattern.

Cast on 72 sts. Divide sts onto 4 double pointed needles, with 18 sts on each needle. Place marker for beg of rnd. Join by working the first st on left hand needle with the working yarn from the right hand needle and being careful not to twist sts.

Work in K1, p1 rib for 2 in. (5 cm).

Level 3 Knit Hat Reviewed by Sandeleh Francis on 2014-09-12 *****
Great pattern! I got a bit confused by the rows 11 and 12, then repeating from row 1. That is exactly what I should have done, but I repeated from row 4 and had a very short cable. The next time around I did it right! :)

I would like this pattern better with a chart for the cables, but I have done snake cables before so it wasn't too bad.

I will make this hat again!!
