  • Knitting pattern for companion hat to the Apfelwein cowl
  • Charts included
  • Suitable for advanced beginners

Pattern measurements: only inches
Pattern paper format: only US letter


The companion hat to the Apfelwein cowl. The same cables-over-ribbing stitch pattern is used to give texture and stretch. Bulky yarn means it knits up quickly and no blocking is necessary.

The cables require a couple of steps but are not difficult. Instructions for working cables with and without a cable needle are given.

Finished measurements: 45.5 cm in circumference (unstretched), stretching up to 58.5 cm; 20.5 cm deep

Gauge: 13 stitches and 18 rounds to 10 cm in stockinette; 16 stitches and 20 rounds to 4 inches in cable pattern (see swatching instructions)

Note: Though conversions to the metric system have been made on this page for your convenience, the pattern itself uses American measurements.
