Men’s Cabled Hat Pattern

Published by Shana | Filed under Free, Knitting, Patterns

With how brutally cold it’s been, it’s depressing to think we are just a month into winter. It seems like Kansasians have given into the permanence of the cold. Random comments about how ‘nice’ it is outside can be overheard when the thermometer inches above the 20 degree mark.  It’s possible the lack of sun has made us delirious.

Needless to say, it is time for heavy duty knit ware. Lace and silk are nice and all, but these balmy 5 degree days demand wool and cables. Designed the below for the fella. I wanted a guy-friendly design that wasn’t just ribbing and a rolled up cuff so he can double up on his ears. I really love the outcome, and it was a really fast knit (2 days of fairly regular knitting).

OMG, my ears have never been so warm.

    Hi, I really like this hat, and want to make it for my boyfriend. I wondered if you could tell me the head diameter the larger dimensioned hat fits? My boyfriend has a rather large head and I want to work out how much I'd need to adjust the pattern by.

    Thanks!

    I want you to know I just love this pattern.  I've knit 2 of them so far.  Used the men's size for my adult son and the women's size for my 12 year old grandson.  It's still very cold here in ND.  They are so nice and stretchy they will fit anyone.  I have more people to knit for and hopefully this summer I will get around to doing one for myself.  Thanks for sharing this pattern.

    PS, I think there's an error in the 7th round of the crown.  I think the "k3" between the ssk and the k2tog should be "k1"

    So I was wondering, do you knit magic loop?  I was trying to do this pattern with the US 8-32 in circular needle, casting on 90 stitches for the larger size and it was way too short…  Am I misreading the pattern somehow or is it a typo?  If you could let me know that would be so great, I really want to make this pattern for my dad.  Thanks!

    Heya,
    I saw this pattern and was instantly desperate to make it. However this is the first time i’ve ever knitted on a circular needle & as a relatively amateur knitter there’s a few things I’m struggling with & was hoping you could point me in the right direction!

    Firstly on the last line of the ‘body of the hat’ with the CL do you knit the last three knitted stitches or purl (which shifts the whole pattern) & then with the ‘mens only’ last repeat (for the same line) is this only for the last round of the last ‘body of the hat’ line (I hope that makes sense) but I’ve undone the hat a few times to get it perfect & think this is the few lines I’m messing up on!

    Thank you so much! It’s a lovely pattern & an enjoyable challenge but I just need some help in the right direction please!

    Thank you again!

    I'm glad you're giving it a shot, and congrats on making the leap to circs. There's no going back :)

    I'm not completely following what you're asking. Here are the rows -

    • *P2 (3), k3, p2 (3), k3, CL* Repeat from * to * to end of round. – This round is worked even with prior rows. The cable should take up the final six stitches of the row.

    Men's only. Work the final round of the last repeat as:

    • *P2, ssk, k1, k2tog, p2, k3, CL* Repeat from * to * to end of round. - This round is actually a decrease round (or you can think of it as the first round of the crown). The goal is to get your number of stitches down to the women's size so that the crown directions fit. You should have 80 sts after this round.

    You do not need to move the start of the round.

    If this doesn't help, drop me an email (it's in the right sidebar) with some pictures, and I'll see if I can figure out what's up.

    The parentheses would be the number of stitches for the larger size. You should do either the number prior to the parenthesis the whole way through the pattern or the number in them, but never both. And make sure  you don't flip back and forth.

  12. Crafting Incognito Says:

    I'm knitting the mens version of this hat, and am having a problem with the final round of the last repeat on the body of the hat. In order to keep the cabling in line, I only have 9 stitches to "p2, ssk,k1,k2tog,p2.  If I'm reading this correctly I should purl 2, slip 2 knitwise knit 2 together, knit 1, then purl 2.  This takes 11 stitches to do, and there are only 9 between each line of cabling. Obviously I'm reading this wrong.

    Please help!

    You replace the final round of the third repeat of the pattern with the Men's only instructions. It's an adjustment to set you up with the right number of stitches for the crown.

  14. shana Says:

    You're not going to be able to do the whole hat on just one length of needle without doing magic loop. Once you get to the crown, it'll become too small. If you're not comfortable with magic loop and don't have tons of sizes of needles laying around, I'd recommend trying DPNs. Some find them to be finicky, but you won't need to buy a bunch of different sizes.

    Hi

     I started knitting your nice, warm Men's Cabled Hat Pattern yesterday and have gotten to the 7th row of the 3rd repeat without any problems. My next row would be P3 K3 P3 K3 CL repeat to end of round. Do I knit this row or do I ignore it and only knit the Men's only row of P2 ssk K1 K2tog P2 K3 Cl? Or do I knit both of these rows before I go on to knitting the crown?

    HI, 

    I'm about to start this pattern for my boyfriend for christmas and haven't done circular knitting before. I was wondering though if you could suggest a size of circular needle that would be the right size for this pattern because I'm not confident with the magic loop method and there's a comment above that says size 8-32 is wrong? Would you be able to suggest a suitable size? thanks alot! really looking forward to trying it out.

    If you can’t use animal fibers, acrylic is probably your next best bet. I’ve not made this hat from any acrylics, but there are 13 up on Ravelry who have. You can look there to see what suits your husband.

    If you’re working the men’s version, you need to work *P2, ssk, k1, k2tog, p2, k3, CL* Repeat from * to * to end of round. instead of the final round of the body pattern in order to decrease.

    You work 3 rounds of the body, and then this round for four rounds total. Not the full body chart, plus the men’s only round.

    On the last repeat of the body, you work this

    *Work 6 (7) rows of *P2 (3), k3, p2 (3), k9* Repeat from * to * to end of round.
    *P2 (3), k3, p2 (3), CR, k3* Repeat from * to * to end of round.
    *Work 6 (7) rows of *P2 (3), k3, p2 (3), k9* Repeat from * to * to end of round.
    *P2, ssk, k1, k2tog, p2, k3, CL* Repeat from * to * to end of round.

    Not this
    *Work 6 (7) rows of *P2 (3), k3, p2 (3), k9* Repeat from * to * to end of round.
    *P2 (3), k3, p2 (3), CR, k3* Repeat from * to * to end of round.
    *Work 6 (7) rows of *P2 (3), k3, p2 (3), k9* Repeat from * to * to end of round.
    *P2 (3), k3, p2 (3), k3, CL* Repeat from * to * to end of round.

    The last row is different from the smaller sizes, in order to set you up for the crown. I’m not really sure how else to explain it.

    yes, the cables use six stitches and are described under “abbreviations” at the top of the pattern. Working the cable plus knitting the next 3 stitches as indicated gives you the 9 stitches.

    A very nice pattern for cabling to be sure, but I feel as if the cables themselves are rather disjointed and just funny looking. I started doing some reading and it says the number of plain rows inbetween turning rows is the same as the number of stitches. If that’s the case, then shouldn’t the cables on either sides be every six rows instead of having six rows between alternating cable rows? Just a thought, but I think I’ll try your pattern again with this in mind.

    I have not done that, so you’d have to experiment with it, but I’d recommend using a lighter weight yarn, in addition to working the body longer. The fabric was pretty dense, and I think if you made it longer at the same weight, it’d just stand up on his head :)

    Is there in error in the CR and CL instructions for teh body? When followed as written the cable is not centred over nine stitches, but shifted to the right. The reason seems to be that the cable pattern ends with k3, then is follwed by another knit three, resulting in 6 knit stitches in a row. Shouldn’t the cl and cr begin with k3 instead of slip three? My apologies if this has already been addressed in the thread. I just finished knitting 22 rows of the body and noticed that my hat does not look like the one the photo above, so was kinda wondering whether it was me or the pattern.

I googled and youtubed it, and I thought I knew how to do it properly but then I had to pull off the first few rows of the crown as the cables and purling didn’t line up as the picture showed they should…
    Clarifying, when you do the “ssk” you slip two stitches knitwise, knit two together, and then pull the two stitches you have slipped over the stitch you just knit? So it would make four stitches into one? I’ve tried to look elsewhere for help (Ravelry, these comments, etc) but I’m afraid to start it wrong again. If you (anybody) could help me that would be greatly appreciated, thank you so much!

    SSK is to slip two stitches to change their orientation on the needle(I can’t remember I’d it’s knit or purl wise) and then knit those same two stitches together. Knittinghelp.com has a tutorial on their decreases page.

    Thank you so much! This is a great pattern! I’ve made 2 and your directions are so easy to follow. I’d never used cabling before but the hats turned out so well. I tried using other patterns I’d found online and they all turned out quite small. This pattern stretches and fit my brothers perfectly!
    Thank you!!

    Thank you so much for sharing your pattern. I just knitted the men’s version of this hat and your pattern was very easy to read and understand. Not sure why others got confused. Best regards, Kim

    Lovely pattern – just what I needed for my husband. We spent several years in the States (New York and Chicago), and your winters are certainly pretty harsh compared to ours in the UK, but morning dog-walks can be fairly bracing and this hat is just the thing to keep him warm. Looks good too!

    When knitting the pattern on magic loop, once one half of the round is done, do I start the pattern again from the beginning or carry on where I got to at the end of the first half of the round? eg, in the ribbing… once I’ve finished the first half of the round do I start the second half with P2 (ladies) or where I got to (ie what stitch 41 would be in the pattern)
    Thanks a lot

    You keep going in the pattern. You do not start over.

    I have made this hat twice now and I LOVE IT. Thank you so much for the pattern. I wish I knew how big it would turn out if I used bulky weight yarn. I have some beautiful merino wool that I would love to try.

    I was super confused about the “ssk” explanation, and I think that’s why the last line of the body of the men’s pattern is so confusing to SO many people. You define SSK “slip 2 stitches knitwise and k2tog,” and to make it more clear it should be noted that it is slip 2 stiches knitwise, and knit those two slipped stitches together. If a knitter follows your directions, the count is all off, hence the huge amount of questions regarding this.

    I am going to knit the womens size. Are the ribbing directions correct as: p2 K3, P2 K3, P3 K3. Or, should the last be P2, K3?

    I love this pattern. I am on my 3rd one since the 1st of Jan. I think that the pattern is very easy to follow – I don’t know why you have gotten so many questions.
