Alternating Cables Cap (Free Pattern)

Alternating Cables Cap

I improvised this hat design and typed up the pattern over a year ago. The hat looked great on my wig/hat stand "Miss Wiggy," but the hat was a tad short on a person.  I finally got around to knitting up the hat one more time and inserted a few rows, here and there, to make the hat long enough.  The hat is rather loose fitting but I am really happy with it.  I think a hat like this, with ribbing and cables, is really flexible for sizing since it's so very stretchy.  As is, this cap will fit lots of folks. My son tried it on and I think it fit him pretty well, too (he's over 6'1" and is almost 16 years old).  Soon I plan to knit another one of these caps in pink and I plan to go down a needle size to see how that works.  I think it will work just fine.  This hat is knit in Berroco Comfor DK and used nearly the entire ball of yarn.

The pattern is available as a free download on Ravelry; for the Ravelry link click HERE.
