Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, purl, basic increase & decrease, knit in the round.

Pattern Description:

Chain Attraction is inspired by my love of chunky jewellery chains - well, who doesn't love a bit of bling to accessorise an outfit?!
The faux cables are the hat's main feature. The simple pattern repeat is easy to remember and knits up super quick, yet doesn't require the use of a fiddly cable needle - hurrah! The hat is knit from the base up, with a deep embossed ribbed edge for added warmth and style, basic increasing for added slouch and decreasing to finish.
The Chain Attraction hat will keep even the coldest of heads warm and cosy, and pairs well with, well, pretty much anything! The ribbing can also be folded over to give a more beanie fit, making this accessory even more versatile.
The hat can be finished with or without the pom pom (a template to help make one is included to print and cut out in your desired size) and would also look fantastic in stripes!

About the designer

I learned to knit when I was seven, but until late 2008 all I could do was knit, I couldn’t even cast on, off, or purl or anything fancier.
I picked it up again while pregnant with my second son ...
