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.

Cable knit hat size:
Adult hat: 52-55 cm
Gauge: 15 stitches = 4 inches
Common abbreviations of knitting stitches:

p - purl
k2tog – knit two together
Cable 10 Back (C10B): Slip 10 knit stitches to the extra needle and hold in back of work, 10k from the left hand needle, 10k from the extra needle.
Cable 10 Front (C10F): Slip 10 knit stitches to the extra needle and hold in front of work, 10k from the left hand needle, 10k from the extra needle.
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 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.
