Cabled Hat Pattern

Posted on February 27, 2021

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.
This is done by working Sc in back bump of each chain across. Join with sl st to beg ch-1. (70 Sc)
Here is link to a tutorial on the back bump chain method.

(You can just do regular Sc’s into the 2nd chain from hook if you’d rather not use the back bump chain method.)

Rnd 2
Ch 2 and DC in next 2 sts, skip next st and FPDC around next Sc, then *DC in next 3 sts, skip next st and FPDC around next Sc.* Repeat between * across row. Join with sl st to beg ch-2.

Tip: Make sure before the FPDC that you skip one Sc and FPDC around the following Sc. You should have 14 FPDCs and 42 DCs on row 2.

Rnd 3-19
Ch 2 and DC in next 2 sts, FPDC around next FPDC, then *DC in next 3 sts, FPDC around next FPDC.* Repeat between * across row. Join with sl st to beg ch-2.

Rnd 20
Ch 2 and work 1 DC Dec over next 2 sts, FPDC around next FPDC, *DC in next st, then work 1 DC Dec over next 2 sts, FPDC around next FPDC.* Repeat between * across row. Join with sl st to beg ch-2.

Rnd 21
Ch 2 and Dc in next st, FPDC around next FPDC, *work 1 DC Dec over next 2 sts, FPDC around next FPDC.* Repeat between * across row. Join with sl st to beg ch-2.

Rnd 22
Ch 1, *skip over to FPDC and work FPDC around FPDC, *Sc in next st, FPDC around next FPDC.* Repeat between * across row. Join with sl st to beg ch-1. FO and leave a long tail.

Using the long tail, whip stitch close the top of hat opening. Pull up tight and tie a knot. Go inside with tail and weave under and tie another knot or two to secure opening.
