Cabled Baby & Toddler Hats

 
This is the cutest little cabled baby hat!

Top Tip - if you are new to cabling - then do it this way ........
c4f = cable 4sts (to the front).
You do this by slipping 2sts on to a cable needle and holding this at the front of your work - then knit the next 2sts - before knitting the 2sts from the cable needle. That's it!

    1. This is knitted with DK (8ply) yarn which knit to 22sts = 4" (10cm) over stocking stitch. As the hat is ribbed it is quite stretchy.

  4. I had a question on the pattern for the smallest size hat. It says to repeat from **to*** three more times. Wouldn't that make the next row be the 47th Row instead of the 39th Row? Or do you repeat **to*** two more times? I'm a little new to knitting and I don't want to mess it up. It is such a cute pattern! Thanks!

    1. You are quite correct Marla - you should repeat two times NOT three times more! I have just put the pattern right. Thank you.

  5. How significantly would the use of size 7 needles rather than size 6 needles affect the size of the hat?

    ReplyDelete
  6. What does s1 mean? Slip 1 does not make sense.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I just realized that the hat is knit flat and joined. Not knitted in a round like I thought. That all makes much more sense.

    1. Hello Jackie - DK is a British yarn weight - also known as 8ply - American #3 yarn - light worsted.
      The important thing is that it knits to a tension/gauge of 21-24sts = 4inches (10cm).
      Hope this is helpful. M

  9. Would I be able to knit this on circular needles so you don't get a seam. Love the pattern!

    ReplyDelete
  10. What method do you use for the seam? I don't seem to be able to make a nice seam that doesn't show holes when stretched apart for wearing. I love this pattern! Thank you!

  18. Hello! I am new to knitting and am going to try your cable baby hat. My question is...when the pattern says to S1, does that mean slip 1 stitch and if so, should it be slipped purl wise or knit wise? Thank you very much for your great patterns! Bird
