Cable and Rib Hat


When I can get a better pic I will upload it. This will have to do for now.

Cable and Rib Hat
Yarn: worsted/aran.  (4 medium)
Needles: size 7 DPN’s
Sizes: Preemie (Baby, Toddler, Child, Woman, Man)       Sizes are according to the CYC Standards.

Stitches: 
C2F: slip 2 stitches purlwise to right needle holding yarn in back, knit 2 stitches, return 2 slipped stitches to left needle keeping them in front, yarn in back and knit them.

m1t: Make one toward.  Though after seeing the finished product I think m1a(make 1 away) might look better. Its up to you. Just increase 1 stitch between the 4 purl stitches.

Pattern

CO 56(64, 72, 80, 88, 96)

K4, p4 rib around for 4 rounds.

Cable Pattern
R1: C2F, p2, m1t, p2 across
R2-4: K4, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1 across
R5: C2F, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1 across
Repeat Rounds 2-5 until piece is at desired length and then begin decreases. 4-5" (5-7", 8", 9", 11", 12")

Decreasing:
R1: Knit the first 7 stitches in the pattern and then decrease the last 2 as a k2tog, repeat across.
R2: Knit a regular round of the pattern
R3: knit the first 6 stitches in the pattern and then decrease the last 2 as a k2tog, repeat across.
R4: Knit a regular round of the pattern

Once you have decreased 4 times and there are 5 stitches in the first group follow this row and you need to cable.

Hold first 2 cable stitches to the front, k1, k2tog, Continue the cable stitch using the k2tog stitch as the 4th stitch. If this is confusing, just don’t do it and leave out the last cable. I totally understand and I wont know. And neither will anyone else.

When there are 2 stitches left in the first group, pull a piece of yarn through all loops knitwise. Pull nice and tight and weave in all ends. You are done!
