Knitting pattern: instant download pdf. This simple cable beanie is knit in the round, on one size of circular needles. This would be suitable as a first cable project, given that the cabling pattern is not overly complicated. It is a modern take on a traditional Aran motif, creating a hat which combines simplicity and a touch of difference.

The hat is sized for an adult, but instructions are given on adjusting the stitch count to create a smaller or larger hat. Gauge is not hugely important for this beanie; the ribbing creates a comfortable fit. I would suggest being guided by the needle size suggested on your Aran wool.

Any Aran yarn should be suitable for this pattern, 5 mm needles/US8 are recommended, but there is some leeway given that Aran yarns can vary a little in thickness. I would suggest being guided by the needle size recommended for the Aran yarn you are using. One 100g skein should be just enough for one hat. You might knit this hat from one skein, depending on its yardage. (e.g. the self-striping hats pictured were each knit from one 50g skein of Adriafil Zebrino yarn, but this has a generous yardage of 125m compared to many 50g skeins). I would suggest a requirement of 100 metres/110 yards of yarn.

The hat is very forgiving in size, since the ribbing gives it some comfortable stretch; and the length can be adjusted between finishing the cable detail and starting the crown decreases.

The hat is seamless, as it is knit in the round, and is super soft and comfortable to wear! It has a lot of stretch since it is ribbed throughout. The beanie measures around 19 inches (48 cm) in circumference (flat, unworn) and 8 1/2 inches (22 cm) from brim to crown (but as I said, it can be adjusted in length as you are knitting).

I'm a knitter from the Aran Islands and am delighted to have my own original designs now available here : )

Great pattern, I haven't done too much knitting before but this was easy to follow and quick too! And the hat was really lovely, used the Aran yarn recommended and only needed one skein. Thanks so much!
