Winterburn Cable Hat Knitting Pattern - HFS Original - Downloadable PDF


We’ve designed this cable knit hat specifically for baa ram ewe’s Winterburn DK yarn, a lovely blend of British wools spun and dyed in Yorkshire.

This is an easy pattern that is suitable for advance beginners and old pros alike.  It’s quick enough for a weekend project or last minute gift but interesting enough to make you want to keep going.  The result is a warm, stylish hat that is a flattering, head hugging beanie style hat.  The cables allow for lots of stretch to fit a variety of head sizes.

Using just 65g of DK yarn, this is a also a great project for the odds and ends in your yarn stash or just one 100g skein of that DK yarn you’ve had your eye on.

Top your hat off with a fun pom pom or wear it without one. Make a big, small, or in-between yarn pom pom or use a faux fur pom pom…make it your own! (Faux fur pom poms sold separately here.)

NOTE:  This is a downloadable PDF pattern and you will be sent an email with the link to download when your purchase is completed.  You will NOT receive a print version of the pattern, however you will be able to easily print it yourself from the download.
