Pink Marshmallow Cable Knit Hat Pattern

This year is coming to its end, today is a Christmas Day and I’m happy to share a new cable knit hat pattern. It’s made with winter yarn and has a folded brim to keep you warm even during the coldest and snowiest days of the winter. It also has a modern shape, stylish wide cables, and luxurious fur pom pom. The hat is knitted with pink and white color yarns that make it look as yummy marshmallows. Spend a bit of your time to knit this lovely hat and indulge yourself with a splendid looking cable knit hat.

Ribbing of the cable hat knitting pattern:

With a white yarn and 3.75 mm circular knitting needles cast on 80 stitches. Mark the first stitch and join for knitting in the round. Knit 7.5cm or 3 inches of k2, p2 rib.

How to make a folded brim of the cable hat knitting pattern:

In the next Round knit all knit stitches as purl stitches and all purl stitches as knit ones. Continue working in 2 to 2 ribbing pattern *p2, k2* until the piece measures 15 cm or 6 inches from CO.

Body of the cable hat knitting pattern:

Round 1: Change knitting needles to a large size and pink yarn. In this round, we are going to increase. Add 40 more stitches. The total number of stitches in the body part must be divisible by 30. In my case the total number is 120 stitches.

Round 2-11: knit in stockinette stitch. 

Round 12: *k10, C10B, repeat from* to end of round.

Round 13-22: knit in stockinette stitch.

Round 23: *C10F, k10, repeat from* to end of round. 

Repeat Rounds 2-12 or Rounds 2-23 once more, depending on the weight of the yarn you are using. For my hat, I repeated only Rounds 2-12.

Shaping the crown of the knitted cable hat:

Round 1: *k2tog, k2, repeat from* to end of round - (90 stitches left).

Round 2: knit in stockinette stitch.

Round 3: *k2tog, k1, repeat from* to end of round - (60 stitches left).

Round 4: knit in stockinette stitch.

Round 5: *k2tog, repeat from* to end of round - (30 stitches left).

Round 6: knit in stockinette stitch.

Round 7: *k2tog repeat from* to end of round - (15 stitches left).

At some point, I just ran out of the pink yarn, so I finished shaping rounds using the same yarn of white color that I used for the cuff.

Cut yarn leaving 10 cm tail. Pull yarn through remaining 15 stitches. Pull tight and weave in the end.

On the top of the hat attach a fur pom pom. I think this is the one of the most adorable and warm hats that I have ever knitted.

    Hi just wanted to thank you for the cute pattern and the way that you show how to do the cable as i’m not really used to doing cable I have only done it once. Thank you again for the pattern

    • Crazy Hands Knitting Editor

      Thank you so much for your kind feedback. Enjoy knitting 🙂

    Hi! Love the pattern! But I was wondering how you did your increases?

    • Crazy Hands Knitting Editor

      Hi Stephanie. If you are going to knit only with one color check my video how to make increases from the previous round https://www.instagram.com/p/BNl4-I2BmE6/?taken-by=amurushka_amur. If you are going to knit ribbing part in one color and body part in another just insert the left needle from front to back into the horizontal strand between the two stitches then you have to knit the stitch through the back loop

    Good Day!
    This is a really nice pattern, and I love the baby hat with ear flaps. Do you have a child size or toddler size in this pattern? I would love to knit this for my pre-school age grandchildren!
    Thanks!

      Hi Julie,
      Unfortunately I dont have another sizes in this pattern. I would suggest you to take lighter yarn and follow the pattern without changing. Otherwise you can decrease the number of stitches for the body part following given suggestions. The total amount of stitches must be divisible by 30.

    Hi! loving making this hat but having some trouble with the C10B, my stitches are so tight after k10 and getting part of the extra needle knitted that I can’t finish getting all the stitches knit from the extra needle. Any tips or advice? Thanks I really am enjoying this project 🙂

    • Crazy Hands Knitting Editor

      Hello Jackie, Please read my answer to another woman that has asked me the same question:

      Thank you for your kind feedback and question. You are not the first person who is asking me to help with cable tension. I am planing to make a small video showing how you can easily cross cables. I believe your way of knitting is too tight that is why you can not knit the stitches off the cable needle.

      I will try to explain:

      In the Round 11 (or any other Round before cabling) you will add yarn over stitches in that stitches that are going to take a part in cabling. So in your case Round 11 will look like [k10, k2, yo, k2, yo, k2, yo, k2, yo, k2, yo, k2, yo, k2, yo, k2, yo, k2, yo, k2] repeat till the end of the Round.

      Round 12: [k10, Slip 10 knit stitches to the extra needle and hold in back of work (drop all yarn over off the needle), k10 from the left hand needle(drop all yarn over off the needle), k10 from the extra needle] repeat till the end of the round. So this way in one round you add yo and in the next one you get rid off of it loosening your knitting.

      Please check photo instruction how to make yarn over from this pattern http://crazyhands.net/azure-cable-hat-knitting-pattern/

      For the Cable 10 Front stitch (C10F) you will firstly knit part with yo stitches and only after k10.

      I am not sure if you got the idea, but when you drop yo off the needle it reduces the tension in cables.

      Let me know if it worked and hope to see soon your marshmallow hat 🙂

        thank so so much! it worked perfectly! i love my hat! 🙂 thanks for your help!

        • Crazy Hands Knitting Editor

          Hello Jackie. Did you use yo to make cables? If yes, could you please tell more, as it might help others. Thank you.

    Where do you increase just random in the round

    • Crazy Hands Knitting Editor

      Usually random but in this hat each knit stitch of ribbing part.
