This classic cable beanie is knit in the round, on two sizes of circular needles. This would be suitable as a cable project for improvers, given that the cabling pattern is not overly complicated.
The hat comes in three sizes, men’s, women’s and child’s, but instructions are given on adjusting the stitch count to create a smaller or larger hat.
Any Aran yarn should be suitable for this pattern, 5 mm needles/US8 and 5.5mm/US9 are recommended, but there is some leeway given that Aran yarns can vary a little in thickness. I would suggest being guided by the needle size recommended for the Aran yarn you are using. One 100g skein should be just enough for one hat.
If you are new to cabling, a cable needle is recommended; also needed is a stich marker to denote the start of each round, and a knitter’s sewing needle for weaving in the ends when you are finished knitting.
