Cable Crochet Beanie

I love the look of this cable slouchy beanie, I wish I could wear hats.  But they always look a little funny on me.

I’ve made this with Caron Cakes and with Loops and Threads 1st kiss yarn (which is a chunky yarn), and it turns out great with both.

This pattern is a bit harder than the Simple Cable Scarf pattern, it uses front and back post double crochet stitches, and we are going to be skipping stitches, then going back to the skipped stitch.

What You Need 

Stitches Used

  • ch – chain
  • sk – skip
  • dc – double crochet
  • fpdc – front post double crochet
  • back post double crochet

Cable Slouchy Beanie Pattern

Ch 42

Row 1 – Dc in the third ch from hook and in each across (41).  ch2, turn

Row 2- Dc in next 4 st, fpdc over next 2, dc in next 5 st, fpdc over next 2, dc in next 5 st, fpdc over next 3, dc in next 5 st, fpdc over next 2, dc in next 5 st, fpdc over next 2, dc in last 5 st.  ch 3, turn

Row 3 – Dc in next 4 st, sk next, bpdc over next then bpdc over skipped, dc in next 5 st, bpdc over next then bpdc over skipped, dc in next 5 st, bpdc over next 2 st then bpdc over skipped, dc in next 5 st, bpdc over next then bpdc over skipped, dc in next 5 st, bpdc over next then bpdc over skipped, dc in last 5 st.  ch3, turn.

Keep alternating row 2 and row 3 until it wraps around your head.  For me, 19 1/2″ was the right length and my head circumference is 22″.

Fasten off, leaving 24″ for sewing.

Sew the two ends together, then weave through the top, pulling tight as you go.  Pull the yarn to the inside, and tie off.  Bury your ends.
