"Sophistication" is the vocab word for this hat, which features a sleek contrasting-color band along the brim and alternating, disappearing cables set against a reverse stockinette backdrop. (One hat in the collection, also offered on Craftsy, titled Elementary Hats.) BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit in the round, cast on, bind off, cable GAUGE 5.5 stitches/inch in stockinette stitch in the round. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Child-sized, ages 8-10. 7.75" from brim to top when measured flat. SUGGESTED YARN 180 yards of Worsted weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN I used Cascade 220 and Knit Picks Swish.

Recommended with this pattern

  • 2 colors of worsted weight yarn. In the example, I used Cascade 220 and Knit Picks Swish. You'll need about 150 yards of the main color and fewer than 30 yards of the contrasting color.
  • 16" circular needles, size US 7 (4.5 mm) or size needed to obtain gauge (I am a loose knitter so in the example, I used size US 6) and additional needles for small-diameter knitting (DPNs, a second circular or a long Magic Loop needle). For a tighter fit around the head, knit the brim in one size smaller needles and then go up a size for the body of the hat. Tapestry needle.
