Hi! Great hat! I think you should put a pom pom!! Looks great (and I'm not a pom pom person but it seems to go with this hat!)  Linda

I have made a few of these and added an extra round of cable to the width, and to the lengths.  Can anyone help me with the decreases with adding an extra width of cable?  The last hat I made I followed the directions and then did the k2 together rounds but wasn't completely happy.  Any suggestions welcome!

I've made several of these out of Karabella Aurora 8 and size 8 circ/dpns and have learned this:
- for a normal head, you have to add an extra cable, meaning add 6 rows of stitching by repeating the body instructions 4 times instead of the prescribed three.
- for a male/big head, it's fine to add two, meaning repeat the body instructions 5 times.
- if you get sick of the pattern, try this modification to make it look like three braided strands instead of two twisted in the cable:
rnd 3: *K2, p2, c4f, k2, p2*
rnd 6: *K2, p2, k2, c4b, p2*
So, instead of slipping 3 sts onto your cable needle, slip two.  The net effect of this is treating the k6 portion as three two-st strands instead of two three-st strands, and thus having a braided-look effect instead of twisted-look.  It is more difficult and it does mean cabling two times as many rows.  I found this easy to do if you do three-row striping.  I made it so the first row of the color was always cabled-- something I'd remember to do.

I finished mine last week, and just now got around to taking pics. I added about 4 rows of ribbing and 1 cable repeat and it's a little big, but it's great for the nor-easter we're having today!

I used Knitpicks Wool of the Andes in Blueberry, Stream, Winter Night and Blue Bonnet. I swear all 4 were supposed ot be BLUE, but Blueberry and Stream ended up sorta teal/green

After reading this thread I had to do my own cabled hat.  I was amazed at how quickly it knit up.  I made it out of Lion's Brand Wool-Ease Worsted Weight yarn and added an extra six rows.  I think on my next one I'll add twelve rows.  It barely covers my ears.

Here's mine! It's also my first cable project. It was super fun, and super easy once I got the hang of it.

I used Lion Brand Woolease, worsted weight in Turquoise. I added one cable cycle, or however you would describe six rounds. It just covers my ears (That's me, looking very delighted with my new skills!)

Here's my version, using some kool-aid dyed yarn I have.  My "model" was unhappy about being used this way.  I think next time I'll make it longer - I added an additional cable but it still too short for big heads.
