Ridged Cable Hat

I used this cable pattern for a cardigan many years ago (Cable and Rib Cardigan #129), and have always loved it. There are only 3 rounds of cabling in the entire hat, so if you like a little bit of cabling but are not an experienced cabler, this is the hat for you!

The stitch pattern is presented in written and charted formats only.
