Granny, I don't really understand your question either, but I did successfully make the hat from Anise's instructions, so they do work out just fine.

Maybe it would be easier to think of the cable pattern as being 9 stitches wide, with one purl stitch on each side of the cable pattern, total = 11 stitches repeat. Alternatively, you could think 9 stitches of cable, 2 stitches of purl, 9 stitches of cable, 2 stitches of purl, etc., which also = 11 stitches repeat.

Anise, thanks again for such a nice pattern!

I'm making this pattern too! I had a helluva time getting the right number of stiches (not used to using odd numbers) but when I figured out that it was a cable with 9 stiches with one purl on either side it made sense. I'll show some picks when I'm done.

I'm so glad you guys like it!

I have to admit, it's WEIRD to have other people using the pattern! It's the first (And so far, only) pattern I've ever come up with. Makes me want to start knitting again after a much too long hiatus!

Granny :XX:
I'm not sure I understand your question.
I understand because I am running into the same problem as GrannySox. You have the row starting p1 and you also have p1 at the end of each row. But with the number of cast-on stitches, at the very end of the row, one ends up with TWO p1s (and then another to start the next row) so there are THREE p1s at the back of the hat. Is it supposed to be like this?
Thanks, Jen

Hmm. I didn't have that problem. You shouldn't have that problem if you cast on a multiple of 11 per the instructions.

AHA! I just figured out what's wrong. To use a 2x2 rib, one needs to cast on a multiple of 4 stitches, which 110 is not.

You can! I used this particular hat as example for the cables in the scarf I was making and they were no problem at all for me. Don't be intimidated, just do it and you'll see it's not as difficult as it seems

Good luck!!

Yes, that's true, but that shouldn't affect how your cables line up. It just messes up the 2x2 rib knit.
