Kristen TenDyke - Duchess Cabled Hat

  Duchess Cabled Hat  
  This hat is so fun and quick to knit. I knit mine in 2 evenings, then even in the 90 degree F heat I didn't want to take it off. It's as fun to wear as it was to make. The thick yarn makes it a very quick knit, and the pattern is interesting enough to hold my attention for the duration of the knitting.

A few stitches are cast on for the center top of the hat. The stitches are worked on double pointed needles and increases are worked for the crown. Once the increases are finished, the cable ribs are worked with the circular needle. One earflap is worked, then the other. I-cords are made and attached to the front and back of the hat, then they are braided.
