Another quick and easy Hat Knitting Pattern for you! – This time with cables!

You’ll have seen in this post here that I’ve been designing some new knitted hats.  Because I love to share, I thought I might as well share my hat knitting pattern, just in case you wanted to have a go at a knitted hat yourself!

This knitted hat pattern is super-quick.  Like my other hat patterns, you can easily make one in an evening whilst catching up on the latest TV Box-set!

To make this knitted hat pattern, you will need 10mm circular needles (and/or DPN’s), a cable needle, a pom-pom and some super-chunky yarn.  You could even try using magic-loop if you don’t have a cable the right size?

This one is slightly more complicated than my previous pattern (but not much!). It has a simple 4 stitch cable running up the side.


Knit in the round, you don’t need to worry about having to do any seaming!

To finish off the hat, you can buy these really lovely furry pom-pom’s online (I got mine from Etsy!).  Or you can make a normal pom-pom out of wool.  They both look good I think!


Try this Knitted Hat Pattern yourself!

If you fancy trying out this pattern (it’s free!) then you can find it on Ravelry here.  If you don’t have Ravelry, you can download the pattern directly by clicking here.

Please share your projects on Ravelry if you do make this hat! I love seeing what other people are making! 🙂

That’s all for now!

  1. I am about to make a hat for my daughter in super chunky yarn but wanted eventually to make a hat in the same yarn for me but with cables, so I am on the look out for suitable patterns. What I don’t quite understand about your pattern is how if the tension is 11.5 stitches to 10cm (=4 inches) how 46 stitches gives you a circumference of 20 inches. Especially as you say ‘unstretched’ and rib is normally closer than stocking stitch.

      1. My head is about the same size as yours but the other pattern I will be using says 57 stitches mind you they have 13 sts to 10cm, so I think I was thinking of that the wrong way. So it is not so different to yours. Maybe hats need to stretch a lot.

  2. Still learning to knit with your tutorials, but this is on my to-do list to make as soon as I have passed all the lessons. However: I found the most gorgeous yarn, but it’s only designed for a 6mm knitting needle? In crochet that wouldn’t scare me, in knitting it (still) does. Is this pattern worked from bottom to top or from top to bottom (as it is in crochet?).

      1. I’ve just tried to do the math with the gauge I have – but I don’t know if this will work out at all. It’s hard to find yarn this big over here (and I also didn’t find knitting needles this big as well). I’ll just give it a go, but I have no clue at all if I’ll succeed. Seems to me the cables will look totally different, and I’ll need to create more cables as well. Hard to wrap my head around it!
