It's been a fun hat season over here in the past two months and I had great time exploring cables left right and center, but I think I am winding it down (except for the kid's hats that I will have out sometime next week) for now.
Kyla is knit in a round from bottom up using cable pattern all the way throughout.
The cable stitch I used is simple to execute, but the effect that you get with the cables standing out so well against the stocking stitch background is simply stunning.
Once again it is the slightly oversized hat with fitted brim and all-over cable pattern. It is knitted in UK alpaca's 100% Alpaca in DK weight, which is lovely and soft, but can be easily substituted with any other DK weight yarn.

Intermediate – basic cables, knitting in the round, simple decreases and increases and finishing.
Head circumference 20 (22, 24) inches / 51 (56, 61) cm.
Brim circumference unstretched 17 ½ (19, 20 ¼) inches / 44.5 (48.5, 51.5) cm.
Approximately 195 (210, 230) yards / 175 (190, 205) metres of DK weight yarn with the following knitting gauge.
22 sts and 28 rnds = 4 inches / 10 cm in St st knit in the round.
Size 4mm (US6) circular needle.
Size 3.5mm (US4) double pointed needles.
Adjust needle size to get the correct gauge if necessary.
Stitch marker, cable needle, tapestry needle.
