My DD1 requested a cabled hat. I wanted to test a pattern first before I did hers in good yarn so I used some random yarn I had laying around. I think it came out pretty cute. I found the pattern was a little large so I know what to do now.

I love your hat. I like that the cables continue to the top. Some hats I have seen stop the cables and then do the top in stockinette.

I see the pattern calls for worsted weight and 4.5mm needles...

I want to use bulky weight and 5.5 mm needles... should I only CO 84 stitches instead do you think? (seems to make sense to me)

Thanks!

My mom will love it for Christmas in a gorgeous Red!

You can CO however many you want, just be mindful of the pattern repeat. Offhand I'm not sure what it is.. I'll have to check..

That's a wonderful hat Jan! I've yet to do cables, I've been so lazy but now that I see that hat I've just got to stop making simple hats. Stockinette I mean. With the usual bit of ribbing. Think I've been intimidated by cables but I also think I shouldn't be!
