Duo-Tone Cabled Hat Free Crochet Pattern

Pattern #: LW5499
Designed By: Edie Eckman

Skill Level: Intermediate

Contrast ribbed band and pompom add interest to this hat that has cool cabled texture already going for it. Crochet it in any two of the beautiful mixable colors of this cozy quality yarn.

Materials:

RED HEART® With Love®: 1 skein each of 1803 Blue Hawaii A, and 1932 Minty B
Susan Bates® Crochet Hook: 6mm [US J-10]
Pompom maker (optional)
Yarn needle
Gauge/Tension: 8 sts = 3″ [7.5 cm]; 11 rounds = 4″ [10 cm] in half double crochet (hdc). CHECK YOUR GAUGE. Use any size hook to obtain the gauge.

Hat measures about 18″ [45.5 cm] circumference to fit 20″ [51 cm] head circumference.

Special Stitches
Fpdc (Front post double crochet) = Yarn over, insert hook from front side of work to back and to front again around post of indicated stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop (3 loops on hook), [yarn over and draw through 2 loops] twice.
Skip the stitch “behind” the Fpdc.
Fptr (Front post treble crochet) = [Yarn over] twice, insert hook from front side of work to back and to front again around post of indicated stitch; yarn over and pull up a loop (4 loops on hook), [yarn over and draw through 2 loops] 3 times. Skip the stitch “behind” the Fptr.
hdc2tog (half double crochet 2 stitches together) = [Yarn over, insert hook in next stitch, yarn over and pull up loop] 2 times, yarn over and draw through all 5 loops on hook.
sc2tog (single crochet 2 stitches together) = [Insert hook in next stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop] twice, yarn
over and draw through all 3 loops on hook.

Notes
1. Hat is worked in rounds, beginning with lower ribbed band.
2. Band is worked with right side always facing. Body of hat is worked in turned rounds.

HAT
With B, ch 48 loosely; join with slip st in first ch to form a ring.

Ribbed Band
Round 1: Ch 2 (counts as first hdc here and throughout), hdc in each ch around; join with slip st in top of beginning ch-2—48 hdc.
Rounds 2–4: Ch 2, Fpdc around next st, *hdc in next st, Fpdc around next st; repeat from * around; join with slip st in top of beginning ch-2—24 hdc and 24 Fpdc.

Body
Round 1 (right side): Ch 2, Fpdc around next st, hdc in next st, Fpdc around next st, *hdc in next 3 sts, Fpdc around next st, hdc in next st, Fpdc around next st; repeat from * to last 2 sts, hdc in last 2 sts; join with slip st in top of beginning ch-2—32 hdc and 16 Fpdc.
Fasten off B.
Round 2 (wrong side): With wrong side facing, draw up a loop of A in same st as joining slip st, ch 2, hdc in each st around; join with slip st in top of beginning ch-2, TURN—48 hdc. Work all following rounds with A only.

Notes
1. In following rounds, you will be instructed to work around or skip a stitch “2 rounds below”. A stitch
“2 rounds below” is in the round numbered 2 less than the round currently being made. For example, if you are working Round 3, a stitch “2 rounds below is in Round 3 – 2 = Round 1.
2. Always skip the stitch “behind” a post stitch. The stitch “behind” a post stitch is in the round you would
usually have worked into.
3. When instructed to work in next stitch, but not “2 rounds below”, work into the next stitch of the previous round (that you would usually work into).
4. Refer to the stitch diagram to clarify the post stitch pattern.
