Madeline’s Cable Mockery Pattern

January 9, 2011

Caps, beanies, berets. When winter is upon us all I ever think about is keeping my head warm. Maybe it’s because Mom always said if your head is warm, so is the rest of you. Those motherly tips never seem to leave me (Thanks Mom!).  

I wanted a beret that had the illusion of cables but without the chunkiness cables add to a hat. This pattern is simple, based largely on the eyelet mock cable design, and no cable needle is need to create the twists. It’s knit over 110 stitches and then quickly decreased over 6 rounds to get the slouchy effect.

I like the hat so much I knit one for my sister for Christmas. Thought others might also enjoy the pattern so I wrote it up and put it on the web for all. Happy knitting!
