If you've never tried to knit cables before, my Twisted Trails EZ Cable Hat may be the one you'll want to try. Yes, yes, it's a cable pattern, but you won't need to worry about using a cable needle. No-sir-ree!! When you get down to it, cable stitches are simply stitches knit out of sequence and that's what we have here. Stitches knitted out of sequence. And I've included instructions on how to do exactly that. To make things a bit more fun I decided to add a twist to the rib by incorporating a twisted knit stitch. Don't know how to do a twisted knit stitch? Don't worry! The pattern will tell you how to do it. The sample hat was knitted up by working 3 yarns together to make a worsted weight yarn, but you can just select a beautiful worsted weight yarn you like and use that. If you're curious, though, I used 1 strand of Heritage Silk by Cascade lace weight (85% superwash wool/15% mulberry wool), 1 strand of Candy Cane lace weight (70% alpaca/20% silk/10% cashmere) and 1 strand of Great Northern Yarns DK weight (70% mink/30% cashmere). As with all my designs, please contact me at the Email listed on the pattern if you have any questions as you work up the design. I want you to have a fun making the hat and end up with a beautiful result. And as always, I thank you for looking at my pattern and a special thanks goes to my many Follower Admirers. You guys are the BEST!

Follow my blog at: I am certified as a Level 1 Master Hand Knitter by The Knitting Guild Association. My grandmother Lena taught me to knit when I was 4 years old and told me that a lifetime of knitting pleasure was her legacy to me. I love to design and knit and enter my work in competitions. I've won numerous awards and ribbons over the years and that's a lot of fun, but the greatest pleasure is the actual creative process. I specialize in Beginner and Intermediate level designs that teach new skills and promote excitement for the art that is Knitting. I think new knitters should have the opportunity to work with a well-written design that reinforces their current skills, teaches them new skills and gets a "WOW, you made that?!!?" response when showing off their completed project.
