Are you tired of using the same stitches to create a plethora of scarves, washcloths, and hats, but you don’t want to learn half a dozen new stitches for a single project? We found an incredibly gorgeous pattern that only requires one fancy stitch, and the results are a honeycomb of cables that you can wear. The Honeycomb Cabled Beanie is cozy and beautiful. It can be paired with your favorite sweater or hoodie and jeans for the perfect fall look.
One important thing to remember when making a clothing item that needs to be sized correctly is gauge. If the gauge is off, your hat could be smaller or larger than it needs to be, resulting in a hat you won’t be able to wear. The gauge for this product is as follows: 8 BLO (back loop only) sc x 6 rows = 2 inches. Taking the time to crochet these rows and check the gauge will ensure that your project is just the right size for you.
The stitches you need to know in order to make the Honeycomb Cabled Beanie are:
- Chain (ch)
- Slip stitch (sl st)
- Single crochet (sc)
- Double crochet (dc)
- Single crochet two stitches together (sc2tog)
- Back loop only (BLO)
- Front post treble crochet (fptc)
There’s a video tutorial included in the instructions, just in case you need some practice before you begin your project. After that, you’re ready to start crocheting cables. In order to make one of these lovely beanies, you’ll need to gather the following materials:
- 1 skein of worsted weight yarn (the pattern suggests using something along the lines of Big Twist Yarns: Premium or Red Heart With Love)
- A 6mm (size “J”) crochet hook
- A tapestry needle for weaving in ends
