Knitting body of the cable hat:

In the next row we need to add 7 sts to get the number that will be divisible by 15. I suggest distributing stitches evenly by placing stitch markers every 10/10/10/10/10/10/8 stitches and add 1 stitch in the middle. Check video tutorial for visual clues.

Change to 6 mm knitting needles.

Round 1: k2, p2, k1, inc, k1, p2, k2, p2, k1, inc, k1, p2, k2, p2, k2, p2, k1, inc, k1, p2, k2, p2, k2, p2, k1, inc, k1, p2, k2, p2, k1, inc, k1, p2, k2, p2, k1, inc, k1, p2, k2, p2, k2, p2, k1, inc, k1, p2. (75 stitches)

Cut he yarn leaving 10 cm tail. Draw the tail through remaining stitches. Pull tail to close top. Weave in all ends and block.

Coming to the final part of its pattern you have at least a couple of options to decorate your hat with a pom. The first one is to make a handmade pom from black or white threads. The second one is to tie a real/faux fur pom pom.
