Expedition Hat

My cable obsession continues with this hat. These cables are spaced far enough apart that they stand out, and this is a perfect hat for beginner cablers to test the waters with!

US 8 / 5.0mm 16" circular needle
US 10 / 6.0mm 16” circular needle
US 10 / 6.0mm double pointed needles


Cabling needle
One stitch marker
Darning needle for weaving in ends


9 sts x 13 rows = 2" in stockinette

  1. Just saw this on facebook on Lion Brand Yarn's page and can't wait to make this. Thanks so much for sharing.

    1. What ply is Fisherman Yarn please? 8ply/ worsted or thicker. Thanks

  2. I am confused by ssk decrease

  3. I too do not understand ssk? Is it slip two stitches together knit wise? Help please.

  4. Slip slip knit or SSK is a basic way to decrease stitches. It makes a decrease that slants to the left and is often paired with knit two together, which is a right-slanting decrease.To execute this decrease, slip the first stitch as if to knit, slip the second stitch as if to knit, then slide the left-hand needle into the front part of both stitches and knit them together.
