Pink Marshmallow Cable Knit Hat Pattern

Pink Marshmallow Cable Knitted Hat with White Fur Pom Pom - Photo 4

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.  

Knitting materials and knitting tools:

<> Circular Knitting Needles 3.75 mm (US 5/ UK9) for the ribbing part and 4.5 mm (US7/UK7) for the body part;

<>  Yarn - Alpacana Lanoso, 35% wool, 40% acrylic, 25% alpaca. White and pink colors: 100 grams -130 m per skein – < 2.5 balls;

<> Fur pompom.

Cable knit hat size: 

Adult hat: 52-55 cm

Gauge: 15 stitches = 4 inches

Common abbreviations of knitting stitches:

k – knit

p - purl

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

Reply
Crazy Hands Knitting Editor 7th January 2018 at 21:08

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 🙂

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 https://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 🙂

Am new to knitting. Am confused about the 2by2 ribbing stitch. In pattern you say knit the purls and purl the knits. Is there a video to explain how to do this. I am confused. Do I start each round with p2,k2?
Tks

Reply
Knitting Guru 18th December 2018 at 00:34

Hi Pat. Firstly you rib ķ2,p2 but after 5-6 cm you start each row from p2, k2. Your brim will be better to fold if you follow this pattern. If it is still strange for you simply rib ķ2,p2 till the end of ribbing part.

Hi… i follow you on instagram! Beginning knitter here, my question is if i use a magic loop i don’t really need to be concerned abt yo as compared to double pointed needles? I saw the questions up there and i’m wondering if this is an issue with the knitting in rounds? Thanks!

Reply
Knitting Guru 15th January 2019 at 23:35

Hi.do you also have problems with cables? If so, you will need to make yo as well even you use magic loop method. If no, just follow the main pattern

Hi

Can you tell the weight of the wool as I am in the UK and would need to use a different yarn ?

Reply
Knitting Guru 22nd January 2019 at 16:55

Hi. We dont use weight in my country but i would suggest it is bulky or medium. In my opinion it is better to buy the yarn where 130 meters per 100 grams

I am knitting the pink marshmallow hat and i have a question about the cable 10 back. am i understanding right that when it says to cable 10 back it means to hold all 10 stitches to the back, knit 10 and then knit 10 from cable needle? I asdk this because mo0st of the time when it says to cable a certain number of stitches, you have to split that number. like cable 10 back would mean put 5 stitches on cable needle knit 5 and then knit 5 from cable needle. I did your cable 10 exactly as it said to but I want to know if i am doing it right. hope this makes sense as i thought it seemed tight but i really love this hat. You do beautiful cable work by the way. I will be making more of your patterns!

Knitting Guru 27th October 2019 at 22:38

Hi Michelle. You are absolutely right with C10B. You put 10 sts in back on the extra needle , knit next 10 sts and then knit 10 sts from the extra needle. Thanks for your feedback and hope to see your hat soon 🙂
