I recently shared the Calvin Beanie Pattern with you all for my 30 Days of Beanies series.
Today is another cable pattern I have created! This one is a bit more complex but you can easily master this adorable stitch and be well on your way to creating tons of crochet cable beanies for yourself!
I am proud to introduce you to the Owen Cable Beanie!
DC (double crochet)
SL ST (slip stitch)
FPDC (front post double crochet)
FPTC (front post triple crochet)
SC2TOG (single crochet 2 together)
*** Instruction for FPTC : YO twice, into stitch and draw up a loop. YO pull through 2 loops. YO pull through 2 more loops. YO pull through last two loops.

Row 1 – DC in the 4th CH. DC all the way across. CH 2. Turn.
Row 2 – DC in the BACK LOOPS only. CH 2. Turn.
Row 3 – ?
You will continue with the Row 2 repeat until you have a brim the correct size you need for a head.
Join the brim by SL ST the ends together. Flip the brim right side out and CH 1. We will now be working in the round to create the rest of the beanie.
***keep the initial SCs in multiples of 8
Round 1 – SC all the round for a total of 56 sts. SL ST to CH 1. CH 2.
Round 2 – DC all the way around. SL ST to CH 2. CH 2.

Round 11 – repeat round 5

Round 13 – repeat round 5
Round 14 – repeat round 4 ***end with a CH 1
Round 15 – *SC/SC2TOG. Repeat from * all the way around. Tie off leaving a long tail.
Now is when you will weave your tail in and out of the top sts to “sew” your opening closed. From here you can add a pom pom or leave it as is. I opted to place an XL pompom on the top. I absolutely LOVE the overall look!
I did make the brim for this beanie longer than some of my other ones. The reason for this is to give you the option of wearing the brim folded over or to leave it longer for an exaggerated slouchy look!
