I just finished this hat for a friend's birthday present and I soooo want to keep it. Wink
It is from the 2005/2006 Winter Vogue Knitting. It's called TRAPPER HAT.
My gauge was off so my result looks different from the magazine photo but I still like it.

That's very cute. Your friend is definitely lucky. You could always make yourself another one in a different color!

I've been wanting to make that hat!  God it's cute!  You are making me wish I had some pink yarn around, it would be so cute on my niece.

Thanks! I am planning to make one for myself in maybe a chocolate brown or eggplant purple. I found the hat really easy and a pretty quick knit. The cable pattern is a cinch.

That is fantastic! Oh... how I want it. You did a really good job. Is the pattern only in the magazine? I cant buy it on the site? Ive searched the net for any other pattern like this and cant find it  Undecided  anyone know of one?
Once again, this is soooo nice. Wish I was your friend  Cheesy

You could get an earflap pattern and add the horseshoe cables and the garter stitch brim.  I would assume it is only available in the magazine, which you would now have to backorder.  They have a ton of great cable patterns in there though, and I made my first sweater from it too.

I did mine in black, so you can't see the cables very well.  But seeing yours makes me want to do it again in a different color!

Thanks Everyone,
The back flap (which covers the ears) and the front flap are both done separately in garter stitch. You then just join them on circular needles and start on the main body of the hat. I think it would be easy pattern to figure out with some trial and error using a stitch dictionary to find a cable pattern and maybe swatching for size. I think it looks more difficult than it actually is, which I love since people at work were way impressed.  Wink
Knittinkitten: Good to know about the black. I was considering a darker color but now I might switch gears to lighter colors for when I make one of these for myself.
Also, some LYS stock old issues so that might be another avenue for getting this specific pattern. Smiley
