I recently finished a besotted scarf for my daughter and now would like to make her a matching hat.  I would like the "band" of the hat to be the XOXO cabling.  One problem... I have no idea how to make this happen.  Is there a book/online tute/already made pattern that I could attempt to morph?  Am I gonna have to do tons of math and use graph paper?  Is this way too hard for me to ever figure out? Thanks!

yes, yes there is.  Go look at Coronet on knitty.  That is a different cable, but it gives instructions for making a cabled band around a hat.  Basically, you provisionally cast on enough for one width of your cable, work that cable till it's long enough to go around the head in question (maybe a tiny bit longer).  Then graft (kitchener stitch) the two ends of this cable band together.  then pick up stitches from the WRONG side of one edge of the cable band, and knit a basic hat up from there.  you end up with a fold over cable band.  If you don't want it folded over (only want a single thickness over the ears, you would pick up from the RIGHT side of one edge of the cable band.

Oh yea!  Thank-you!  Thank-you!  This is much simpler than what I thought it would be, and my smart smart husband already "inverted" the pattern for me.  I KNEW there was a reason I married him!
