Crocheted Cable Hat
Crocheted Cable Hat Pattern
Yarn: Cascade 220 or equivalent worsted weight yarn
Hook: Size J
Chain 68. Join w/ slip st to form ring.
Round 1: Dc in each chain across. (68 )
Rnd 2: *Dc in 1st Dc, DCFP (Double crochet in front post) in 2nd DC repeat * across.
Rnd3: Repeat until hat measures 3 1/2 inches from chain edge then start decrease rounds.
Decrease Rounds Part A:
Note: Decreases are done by skipping the regular double crochet stitches and doing a double crochet in the next front post. In Part B, the decreases change.
Rnd 1: Skip 1st Dc (decrease made,) Dcfp in Dcfp. (Dc in next Dc, Dcfp in the next Dcfp.) 16 times. Skip next Dc, Dcfp in Dcfp. (Dc in next Dc, Dcfp in the next Dcfp.) 16 times. A total of 2 decreases were made this round. (66 )
Rnd 2: Work even. (Dc in each Dc and Dcfp in each Dcfp. Be careful to make sure the stitches you skipped are now just Dcfp’s, you don’t want to accidently add back your decreased stitches.)
Rnd 3: Dcfp, *(Dc, Dcfp)x3, skip Dc, Dcfp. repeat at * 3 times. Dcfp, repeat at * 4 times. (8 decreases were made.) (58 )
Rnd 4: Dcfp in each Dcfp, Dc in each Dc across. (56 )
Rnd 5: *Dcfp, (Dc, Dcfp) x2, skip Dc, Dcfp, repeat at * 3 more times, dcfp, repeat * 4 times, Dcfp. (8 more decreases made) (50 )
Rnd 6: Work even (Dcfp in each Dcfp, Dc in each Dc.)
Rnd 7: *Dcfp, Dc, Dcfp, skip Dc, Dcfp, Dcfp repeat at *3 more times, dcfp, repeat *4 times, Dcfp. (8 more decreases made) (42 )
Rnd 8: Skip each DC, and DCfp in every DCfp. (34 )
Decrease Rounds Part B:
Decreases in this round will be done as follows: YO, put hook in first DCfp (as if to do a Dcfp), pull up a loop, YO, pull through 2 loops. YO, put hook through next Dcfp (as if to do a Dcfp), pull up a loop, YO, pull through 2 loops, YO and pull through all loops on hook. This will be abreviated as Dec.
Round 8: *Dcfp in each next 4 Dcfp’s, Dec repeat at * around. 5 times, ending with 4 Dcfp’s. (29 )
Rnd 9: *Dcfp in each of next 2 Dcfp’s, Dec repeat at * around, ending with 1 Dcfp (22 )
Rnd 10: Dec in every other Dcfp, ending with a Dcfp. (15 )
Rnd 11: Dec every St, ending with 1 Dcfp. (8 )
Rnd 12: Work even, Dcfp in 8 stitches across, bind off with a long tail and then sew in into the last 8 stitches, cinching it closed and then weaving in ends.
