It’s the most wonderful time of year: when we give away free crochet patterns every week leading up to the holiday gift-giving season. We’re featuring a new free pattern every Tuesday for 12 weeks. This week’s free crochet pattern is the Winter Cable Hat.

To help you with your holiday gift list, we offer our favorite annual tradition: the 12 Weeks of Gifting, where we release a brand new free pattern every Tuesday for 12 weeks, counting down the days to mid-December. We are featuring all sorts of projects—from cozy shawls
to cushy scarves and pretty hats—a little something for everyone on your list!

Winter Cable Hat – Free Crochet Pattern

Download the free crochet pattern: Winter Cable Hat.

Intertwined cables twist around this cozy hat, designed to keep your noggin warm while you snowshoe through the woods on a crisp winter day.

This hat begins with a ribbed band, is then worked sideways in a long strip, and then joined to create a tube. The body of the hat is worked in the round from the ribbing to the top of the hat. The cables are easier than they look—just pay attention to whether your post stitches are worked in front or behind your previous stitches—this will ensure that they cross over each other correctly.

Yarn needed: Swish DK
