Amazing Cable Hat

Good evening, everybody! I had a special request for a hat recently. My friend Sheetal had trouble with her hats because she needed them to cover her ears, but then the hat was always covering her eyes. She also requested a smaller flower for the side. I came across this amazing hat pattern online, and I emailed it to myself with the subject: amazing cable hat. I did not think it was possible to do this pattern with crochet! I love braided cable, but I was convinced it was a knit-only.
I finished with hdc in blo. In order to keep the hat covering the ears but not the eyes (without making ear-flaps), I split the end of the hat and sewed the flaps up. To be honest, I am not really sure how I handled the split. Maybe I added stitches? All I know is that this awesome hat covers the ears but not the eyes! Mission accomplished. I decided not to add the flower because I thought the hat had a lot of detail. I am still waiting to hear back from my friend, but believe this: you will hear about it if I do.

Suggested blog nob reading: NermalMia. Hilarious.

Hi. I love your cabled hat. It's really amazing, but I just can't find the pattern in the link you posterd. It sends me to the pattern of a mesh hat. Could you (pleeeeeeeeease) send it to my gmail? it's aniel.angel@gmail.com

I'm crafting a lot of cabled hats and I'd love to add that one to my collection. I can send you a pattern in return too if you want.

Love the hat. Is there a pattern? The one you have linked goes to a non- cabled hat. :( I would love to make this....

Hi, I like your hat too! It is really cute on you! What kind of yarn is it? And what size hook? Did you make it as the pattern says and add a row of hdc? Any tips would be great.
I got a bunch of yarn yesterday and am working on a bucket hat for me and an owl hat for my 9 yo daughter. I got a wool blend to try this hat, should be good I think!
