chunky cable hat pattern *free* simple and quick cables by Emily Wessel...This basic cable hat is a free pattern, intended as a perfect first project when learning to cable. It is knit in the round, from the brim to the crown. It also looks great with a pompom!
The 1x1 rib as well as the smaller needles make for a dense, very warm hat. The stitch is also super stretchy so the pattern is written in one size with changes to the length to accommodate different sizes. Ravelry pattern. Free.
