Slable cabled hat - knitting pattern

Cables within cables make for a crossing that’s unusually smooth, as well as creating a diamond texture that echoes the moss stitch background. The neatness of this effect is supported by working all shaping within the stitch pattern – just perfect!

Written and charted instructions for three sizes are supported with illustrated tutorials for the alternate cable and cable cast-ons.
