"Winding Cables Hat is a great project for those who would like to dip their toes in the world of Tunisian crochet cables. The repetitive pattern allows for sufficient practise of the technique creating a beautiful texture reminiscent of narrow countryside pathways. The Aran weight yarn recommended for this project offers sufficient warmth for this item to be worn throughout autumn and winter, while having great stitch definition and drape. The Hat makes a great addition to the Winding Cables Scarf. "

NotesThe Winding Cables Hat is worked flat, RS facing from right to left and assembled using the Locking Mattress Stitch along the short sides of the project.
Ribbing is made using smaller hook, while the main body of the hat is made using larger hook.
The stitch count refers to the number of lps on hook on FP.
There are 12 cable st patterns (6 back and 6 front worked over 6 sts each) running in parallel with sts being crossed in the same row every 4th row.
Work tks sts in rows where sts cross over slightly looser otherwise the cables will look flat and stretched.
