and if you'd like us to see this cable

or any other cable that you happen to be

working on please use hashtag your

inspirations and we can see what you're

up to

so let's get started on the Hat alright

as is often the case I have cast on a

teeny tiny sample instead of a big giant

bulky hat so I can keep it all on camera

you will cast on the required number of

stitches and you will work in knit two

purl two ribbon following the

instructions until it's about four

inches long then you're going to change

to the larger set of needles and proceed

as follows knit four one two three four

knit front and back so knit in the front

of the stitch do not push it off the

left-hand needle knit in the back leg of

the same stitch which gives you a one

stitch increase and then you can push it

off the back needle and we're going to

repeat that around one two three

for knit front and back knit in the

front leave it on the left-hand needle

knit in the back push it off and we're

gonna do that all the way around after

I've done that increase row I'm moving

over to the cable chart but of course we

also have it written out in text for you

whichever you prefer so I'm going to do

two rounds that were knit eight purl

four repeat from asterisk around and

there they are here knit eight purl four

repeat around now I've already put those

on because I'm fairly confident you can

handle that on your own what I wanted to

show you is the cable so we have these

abbreviations that are C for B and C for

F that's cable for back and cable

forefront and we have those instructions

written out for you on the very first

page of the pattern okay so this round

begins with C for b which is cable for

back I'm going to slip the next two

stitches onto the cable needle one two

and leave in the back of the work that's

what the B stands for in C for B then

I'm going to knit the next two stitches

one two and then I'm going to knit the

two stitches from the cable needle one

two then the next instruction is C for F

or cable 4 front and that says slip the

next two stitches onto the cable needle

one two and leave it front of work knit

the next two stitches one two

and then the two stitches from the cable

needle one two and then the next part of

the instruction says purl four have to

get my yarn to the front of the work

purl four one two three four and so

that's what that first repeat looks like

so we're going to repeat what's in that

asterisk or those twelve stitches in

that cable panel on the diagram we're

going to repeat that all the way around

shall we take a look at that one more

time we're going to cable 4 back so

that's moving one two stitches on the

cable needle and leaving it at the back

of the work knit 2 1 2 and then knitting

the two stitches from the cable needle

one two and then we're going to cable 4

front move two stitches onto the cable

needle one two drop it at the front of

the work knit two stitches from the next

needle one two and then knit the two

stitches from the cable needle

one two and then pearl four one two

three now looking back at both the text

and the diagram the next round is going

to be knit eight pearl four and then

we're going to repeat that four round

pattern so rounds one and two are also

knit eight pearl the third round

is that cable for back cable forefront

pearl for repeat so you're going to keep

doing this until the work measures about

ten inches or twenty five and a half

centimeters ending on a fourth round now

to shape the crown you're going to do

some decreasing and that is going to

affect the number of stitches in your

cable however you will be able to see

what's going on because of course you'll

have a much bigger sample by then you're

going to keep those purl stitches

aligned you're going to keep those

cables aligned and it's gonna be super

easy to close up that crown and finish

it with the most adorable pom pom so
