Cabled Hat

Lion Brand® Lion® Cashmere Blend

GAUGE:

20 sts + 28 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Ehhh ... Reviewed by Shannon Wingert on 2012-12-22 **
... it looks more like a dwarf hat when it's finished. At least MY version did. Like some of the other knitters mentioned, I also found an 8-stitch cable stitch a bit tricky, and the finished product is too snug for an adult head. (And I even made it bigger than the pattern called for.) It's not the worst pattern, but it's not worth the trouble overall.
