Note: I decided to add some wristwarmers to match. Their pattern will be up shortly. 🙂
I’m still on my hat kick, and have been playing around with cables lately, so of course one thing led to another and another hat was born! Just a simple hat with a cable really, but since I rarely see crochet cabled hats I thought I’d post this one. I made it a tad on the large side since I dislike hat hair 😛

Using magic loop, 10 dc into loop. Join with sl st to first dc, ch 3.
Round 1: 2 dc in each st around. Join to top ch of first ch 3. Ch 3. 20 sts
Round 2: *1 dc in first st, 2 dc in next st* repeat *to* around. Ch 3. 30 sts
Round 3: *1 dc in first 2 sts, 2 dc in next st* repeat *to* around. Ch 3. 40 sts
Round 4: *1 dc in first 3 sts, 2 dc in next st* repeat *to* around. Ch 3. 50 sts
Round 5: *1 dc in first 4 sts, 2 dc in next st* repeat *to* around. Ch 3. 60 sts
Round 6: dc around. Ch 3. 60 sts
Round 7: dc in first 30 sts, then start cable: fptrc around next 4 sts. Dc to end. Ch 3
Round 8: repeat round 7
Round 9: dc in first 30 sts, fptrc in 4th fptrc from last round (furthest from you) , then in the 3rd on, then the 2nd, then the 1st. You’re twisting the cable by doing this. Dc to end.
Round 10: dc in first 30sts, fptrc in first fptrc from last round, making sure to keep the twist. Fptrc around next 3 sts, dc to end.
Repeat rounds 7-10 once more.
Switch to H hook, repeat round 7 once more, only do fpdc instead of fptrc when you come upon the cable.
Next round: *fpdc around first dc, bpdc around next dc* repeat *to* around.
