My fella asked for a fashionable, cabled hat and this is what I whipped out for him. He loves it! It's knitted with 2 skeins of my Pearl Taupe yak-silk sport weight yarn but any stretchy sport weight yarn will work (like wool). It's a really simple pattern and would be pretty straight forward to knit, even if you're new to cables. Nothing crazy here; just one type of cable cross to learn and you repeat that same one throughout the pattern. Although designed for a guy, it would of course be great for gals as well. You can use double pointed needles or the magic loop method like I did, as you'll be working in the round. Enjoy!
