Chunky Cabled Beanie
Beanie modeled by Megan
A terrific beginner cable pattern!
You will need:
-16" circ. size 10 1/2 needle
-approx. 80 yds chunky weight yarn
-jumbo tapestry needle
Cast on 66 sts.
Join in the round and knit as follows:
(K4, P2, K3, P2)* repeat this for 4 rounds.
Round 5: (C4F, P2, K3, P2) until end of round.
Repeat these 5 Rounds until piece measures 5.5 inches from cast on.
Decreases (remember to C4F on the K4 every 5 rows)
Round 1: (K4 [or C4F], P2tog, K3, P2)* repeat for rest of round.
Round 2: (K4 [or C4F], P1, K3, P2tog)* repeat for rest of round.
Round 3: (K4 [or C4f], P1, K2tog, K1, P1)* repeat for rest of round.
Round 4: (K4 [or C4F], P1, K2tog, P1)* repeat for rest of round.
Round 5: (K2tog, K2, P1, K1, P1)* repeat for entire round. If this decrease occurs where a cable should be, C4F, BUT, knit the two first stitches of the cable together, then knit the two stitches off the cable hook separately.
Round 6 (if your stitches aren’t too tight on your circ. needles): (K2tog, K1, P1, K1, P1)* repeat for rest of round.
Round 7: (K2tog, P1, K1, P1)* repeat for rest of round.
Before casting off, cut your yarn from your ball, leaving about ten inches hanging off the top of your hat. Thread your yarn through your jumbo tapestry needle. Stitch by stitch, slip your stitches of your left hand needle onto the tapestry needle, until all you stitches are on your remaining length of yarn. Pull tight like a drawstring, and tie your yarn off on the inside of the hat securely. Weave in your ends.
