Pattern for Baby Cable Hats
These hats and booties use the same pattern stitch. Here are photos of the first three sets I've knit.
This is the pattern for the hats:
I used size 2 DPNs and double knitting (sportsweight) yarn.
Cast 48 stitches on three dp needles (16 stitches on each needle).
K1 in back of first stitch, P second for 8 rounds.
Round 1: K2, P2
Round 2:Knit into the second stitch, pulling the new stitch through but not slipping it off the needle, then knit into the first stitch, and slipping both to the working needle. P2
Repeat for 36 rounds (18 baby cables)
Decrease as follows, repeating on each needle
Round 1: K6, K2 tog, K6, K2 tog (14 stitches each needle)
Round 2: K5, K2 tog, K5, K2 tog (12 stitches each needle)
