  • knit, purl, k1b, m1, cables (explained in the Legend)

Pattern Description:

After designing the Interlocking Cable Socks, I decided to use the cable pattern in other designs. It suits a hat perfectly, with 5 repeats encircling the hat. Two sizes are workable, through a change in needle size.

The hat was sampled in Kraemer Yarns Naturally Nazareth, a 100% domestic wool yarn, now made using a finer micron count wool, so it is much softer and more comfortable.

Both sizes uses less than one skein each, and so makes a quick accessory for yourself or a lovely gift!


20 sts and 26 rows = 4" (10 cm) in St st with size 7 ndls,

18 sts and 23 rows = 4" in St st with size 8 ndls,

1 rep (24 sts) cable patt (unstretched) = approx. 3.25 / 3.5" unblocked and 3.375 / 3.625" blocked.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Sizes: S-M / M-L
  • Hat Circumference:18 / 20" stretches to 20 / 22"
  • Hat Depth - top of crown to rib edge: 7.5 / 8"


  • Kraemer Yarns Naturally Nazareth, 100% domestic wool, approx 184 yd / 100 gram skein: 1 skein #Y1301 Natural or color of your choice
  • 16" US size 7 (4.5 mm) / 8 (5 mm) ckn
