Azure hat with cable knit pattern

Knitting azure hat with circular needles

A short knitting real life story. Recently my cousin got a task at school to knit a hat that they would be ready to wear))) She reached me and asked if I would be ready to help her. I agreed and we spent a great time together by going through tons of free knitting patterns for hats on the web, discussing them and finding a bright-colored yarn to get a perfect match of the color and knit cable pattern. Honestly saying I was also surprised of the knitted hat we made and decided that it’s worth sharing this pattern in details. So if you’re looking for knitting something bright, then this azure knit cable hat pattern might be a great choice or at least one of the options to consider (acid-tested with a teenager).

Cast on 102 stitches onto the smaller circular needles, place marker and join to work in the round. Start with ribbing row – *k1, p1*. Knit the ribbing row until piece measures 5.5 – 6 cm (in my case it was 13 rows).

    This hat is beautiful! Thanks for sharing the pattern. Do you think it could be made into a messy bun hat?

    • annanitato_175

      yeah, why not 🙂

    • jackie

      Just thought I would tell you….I have used almost every hat pattern I have for messy bun hats…you just work them down to the decrease and then guess…lol…that part is hit and miss.. I just decrease until I think the hole is small or large enough and then knit one round and cast off… So far it has always worked!

      • annanitato_175

        haha… nice method. Would love to see your hat 🙂
