Cabled Hat Pattern

A few weeks ago I introduced the cable scarf pattern and just love this stitch pattern. I decided that it would make a great hat pattern also. I have crocheted this hat pattern using several different hook sizes. The I hook makes a ladies sized hat and smaller men’s sized hat. The J hook creates a large men’s hat. I crochet fairly tight so use the hook you feel is appropriate for your gauge. My gauge with an I hook is 2 inches = 7 stitches and 5 rows. Gauge with a J hook is 2 inches = 6 stitches and 4.5 rows.

This blue hat was crocheted using an I (5.25 mm) crochet hook.

Here is the same hat crocheted using a J (6 mm) crochet hook.

My Cabled Hat Pattern
I (5.25-5.5 mm) crochet hook = Adult 21” cir by 9″ long
J (6 mm) crochet hook = Adult 22” cir by 9.5” long

Yarn – 3.5 ounces worsted weight (medium) 4-ply
Note: Ch 2 at beg of each round counts as DC.

Ch 71. Join to make a ring and making sure your chain is not twisted.
(You will be working in the round and not turning your work as you crochet this hat.)

Rnd 1
Ch 1, Sc into the 2nd bump loop in the back of the chain to create a smooth edge.

Basic Cabled Scarf

Here is a new pattern to share that I have been working on. It is a basic cabled scarf that is worked with front post double crochet (FPDC) stitches and back post double crochet (BPDC) stitches.

My tester Suzanne who crochets much looser than I do used a H (5 mm) crochet hook to test the pattern. She used Mainstays 100% Acrylic yarn in gray and her scarf was 7″ wide x 60″ long and used 7 oz/397 yards of yarn. A big thank you to my tester Suzanne for all her help and advice to get this pattern completed and written up successfully.

Enjoy the free crochet pattern below and happy crocheting to all!

Basic Cabled Scarf Pattern

Note: Ch 2 at beg of each row counts as DC. Each row has 5 cables and 18 DCs.

With I hook, Ch 29.
