Cables, cables cables! This is a knitting pattern for the advanced-beginner or intermediate knitter. Finished product fits the average size woman's head. The fit of this hat should be fitted to slightly slouchy depending on your yarn selection and knitting tension.

US11/8mm OR US10.5/6.5mm for brim (16” circular) - pattern notes 11, but for a more snug fit, use US10.5
US13/9mm for body (16” circular)
US13/9mm DPN for decrease (or magic loop)

Use a double strand of DK OR a single strand of bulky 5. Super bulky 6 is not recommended for this pattern.

This beanie can be extra slouchy OR choose to begin decrease early for a more fitted (slightly slouchy) fit.

First beanie made with this pattern, wonderful pattern! The brim fit well but the main body of the hat turned out way too big for me. Going to try sticking with the smaller needles on my second beanie to accommodate my smaller head! 🙂 Update: using smaller needles and the suggested possible early spot in the pattern to begin decreasing was successful! I have now made several of these that actually fit. 😻

This was my first time ever doing cables but it was totally doable with this pattern. Easy to read and makes a beautiful product!

Amazing pattern done by Casey. Insta-famous beanie came to life with this pattern. Im a crocheter at heart and attempted cables for the first time using her pattern. Goes to show how amazingly easy this pattern is to read and understand. An absolute must have for your knitting needs.
