Slouch Hat in Broken Cable Knit Pattern

Image
Recently I purchased some pom poms through Amazon (linked below). When I saw this lilac one, I thought it would be a good companion for some yarn I had - Stitch Nation Washable Ewe (worsted, 2 skeins, 2 strands used on size 10 needles). The hat is roomy and has a slight slouch to it. I casted on 84 stitches and increased to 108 stitches then began the pattern:


I repeated the pattern twice and then began the decreases on a magic loop.


This is a great deal on these needles:

Knitted Cable Hats with Pom-Poms

It's been a busy winter so far with me knitting hats! Ever since I have found the PremKnits cable hat pattern, I've been trying different versions. See the hats on my new video:


Hats made with Caron Simply SoftSince double strands of Caron Simply Soft is still not chunky (5), which is needed for this pattern, I needed to improvise. Size 13 needles gave me too loose of a fabric, so I took the needle size down to size 10 (lavender and mauve hats). I used size 11 for the red/black hat, but prefer size 10. In order to use size 10, I needed to add a cable pattern of 14 stitches. In the end to get a roomy hat (mauve hat with Christmas ornament), I added 2 cables, casting on 76 stitches and increasing to 112.






Hat made with Patons Roving Wool
The hat above was knitted with Patons Roving Wool. I love this yarn! It is 100% wool and is so soft. I modified the pattern by casting 70 stitches onto 10 1/2 needles and increasing to 98 stitches making 7 cables.
