In a twist
by KathyApril 23, 2016
I really liked this pattern, but tried so many times to get it right. The video really helped. I am back to the drawing board and determined to get it right.
Cable Twist Hat
by Alexandra of EyeLoveKnotsApril 19, 2016
Overall, I fell in love with this hat pattern and am looking forward to wearing my hat in the cooler weather, and gifting some this upcoming holiday season.
After working the gauge, and seeing the need to jump hook sizes, I am confident that any worsted weight yarn will work great for this project.
I had never worked cables before, so the pattern proved to be a challenge at first, but I found the matching Cable Twist Hat video by Mikey of The Crochet Crowd and it helped clear up all of my confusion on how to work the cables.
One thing that had me ripping my work out was the round following the cable foundation. My tip is, go slow and make sure you're working into the post, not the stitch as the stitch is stretched a bit. I did get really frustrated with this pattern, and considered frogging the piece because of the cable foundation and following round, but I decided to leave them as is and continue on with the pattern and once I got a little further into it, the whole piece came together nicely. Don't give up! Just push on!
To close my hat, I turned my hat inside out, threaded my needle and ran it in and out of every other stitch along the last round. At the end, I pulled on the tail to pull the top closed, and secured with a few stitches.
Size wise, the hat is a little big for my head - next time I will drop down a hook size and work the pattern as is.

I Love the way Mikey teaches. This Cable Twist Hat might be considered not for beginners but because of the way he teaches in the video I was able to grasp the pattern and be successful. Thank you so much for this teaching.
