Cable Stitch Square hat with Pom Poms Crochet Pattern

I have been working on this hat for a couple on months.
I have had so many orders 
that I am just now getting to releasing it.
Although this hat looks hard, it is really quite easy.
I took some pictures to help you 
with the cable section.
Once you see how it is done, 
I think you will think it is easy, also.

I designed the construction 
of the hat a little different
 then I have ever done before, 
but I think it worked great
 for the cable stitch pattern.
The hat is made in a long 
rectangle then sewn closed.

Please, add this Crochet Pattern to your

Fold Hat in half, Wrong side out. Sl St  down each side to sew the sides closed, 
Secure tightly and flip over to the right side.

 R : 49(40) Sc around the brim of the hat. 
This will insure that the sides of the hat do not come apart.

Pom pom - Wrap the yarn  around your 4 finger 30 times. 
With a 12 inch piece of yarn slip it through the loops and tie securely. 
Trim pom poms evenly.

Using the tie of the pompoms attach one to each corner of the hat.


 I did this test hat in pink, but wouldn't it be fun in 
some bright colors or variegated yarn?

If you make one or even a bunch,
Feel free to post a picture
