Crochet Cable Beanie Written Pattern


 

I crocheted this beanie for my husband due to his official trip this month. It must be chilly during the winter so I choose Cable Stitch to create a chunky textured hat. It took me almost 2 weeks to get it done before I almost gave up! 

I had been crocheting for almost two years but had never been deal with this Cable Stitch, so it was a really great achivement for the first time trial yeaay! Thanks to Little Monkeys Designs channel for the very easy and clear tutorial of the Cable Stitch Crochet.

I had no plan to write the pattern until I decided to post it to a crochet group where some members then asked me for pattern. The good news is here I gladly write the pattern for all of them, and the bad one is it is definitely just "written pattern" no step by step picture. Sorry for that but I will try to do my best!

5.00 mm or 8/0 crochet hook
Worsted weight Cotton Acrylic Yarn in 2 different colours
Tapestry needle
Scissors

Size:
Head circumference 54 cm
(Adult size)

Gauge:
4 rows & 6 stitches in DC = 4 cm

Tutorial:

SC - Single Crochet
SC2tog - Single Crochet 2 Together
SC13tog - Single Crochet 13 Together
HDC - Half Double Crochet
DC - Double Crochet
TRC - Treble Crochet

Notices:
1. You may sell your finished item made from this pattern but please do not re-share or claim my pattern as your own. If you would like to share please directly share the link of this post.
2. Paid pattern of somewhat similar hat is available at Inventorium Etsy Shop. This written pattern by me may has some differences in the stitches, method, as well as the final works.

Notes:
1. This hat is crochet from the bottom to top.
2. Foundation chain must be multiple of 11 (9 chains for 9 cable strands, 2 chains for space between two cables).

Tips:
This pattern may applicable for any size as long as you apply these instructions,
1. Determine the head circumference.
2. Make foundation of 11 or 8 (Toddler size) chains, and it has to be as long as or close to the head circumference. One or two chains longer or shorter is acceptable. It can be adjusted by crocheting a little bit tightly or loosely / decreasing or increasing the gauge.

Lets Start!

BRIM
Chain 88, SS to the initial chain, do not twist the chain.
Row 1: CH2, DC in the same stitch, DC in each of the next stitch, SS to the first DC. (88)
Row 2: CH2, *FPDC to the first DC, BPDC to the next stitch**, repeat from * to ** all around, SS to the first FPDC. (88)
Row 3-5: Repeat row 2. (88)

BODY
Special note: I highly recommend you to learn this VIDEO before starting this section. It will teach you very quickly to master Cable Stitch Crochet!
Row 6: CH2, *FPDC in each of the next 9 stitches, DC in each of the next 2 stitches**, repeat *to** all around, SS to first FPDC. (88)
Special note: FPDC in this row will be numbered as 1st to 9th in row from the beginning of the row.
Row 7: CH2, *skip the 1st, to 3rd stitches, FPDTRC to the 4th to 6th stitches, FPDTRC to the 1st to 3rd stitches, FPTRC to the 7th to 9th stitches, SC in each of the next 2 stitches**, repeat from *to** all around, SS to the first FPDTRC. (88)
Row 8: CH2, HDC in the same stitch, HDC in each of the next stitches, all around, SS to the first HDC. (88)
Row 9: CH2, *FPTRC to the 1st to 3rd FPDTRC of row 7, skip 4th to 6th stitches of row 7, FPDTRC to 7th to 9th stitches of row 7, FPDTRC to the first 4th to 6th stitches of row 7 (do it backside), SC to the next 2 HDC of row 8, SS to the first FPTRC. (88)
Row 10: Repeat row 8.
Row 11-14: Repeat row 7-10.
Row 15-18: Repeat row 7-10.
I add 2 more rows (same as row 7-8) to make the beanie higher, but 18 rows is already quite enough.
