Basic Skills Necessary:

  • working with colours
  • cable needle work

Pattern Description:

This is such a beautiful beanie, whether you make it in a single colour, a subtle range of tones, or in eye-popping rainbows! It's also deceptively easy to knit: I've given instructions for knitting it flat as well as in the round. And the zingy, complex-looking cable band will be a breeze when you use the photo tutorial I've included alongside the written instructions.

Instructions given for all sizes from baby - adult, so you could knit one for the whole family!

Note: approx 110m of chunky yarn required for average adult hat. Smaller hats will require less yarn


15 sts x 21 rows in a 10 x 10cm square knitted in stocking (stockinette) st on 6mm needles

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • all sizes from baby - adult
  • 47 - 58cm head circumferences


  • 1 x 100g chunky yarn in main colour
  • scraps of chunky yarn for coloured brim
  • 6mm knitting needles (straight or circular or dpn)

Suggested yarn:

110 meters of Chunky weight
