Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, purl, knit through back of loop, knit the round, make one, cable

Pattern Description:

This square-topped hat features a cable pattern front (matching the cable pattern for the Cridhe Irish Heartbeat children's sweater) and a broken rib pattern on the back. The rolled brim is super easy and creates a nice warm fit while a set of bobbing tassels finish off the corners.

Using a contrasting yarn to attach the tassels is a great way to add that little touch of colour to this hat - or make the tassels from bits of colourful yarn from your leftover stash.

The 4-row cable repeat makes this a quick knit.

Cable pattern is charted; written instructions for chart are also provided. Pattern is knit in the round.
