Nottingham Hat

Hi my dear bloggers

My old friend ask me to knit this hat for her lovely daughters.This hat has a cable on it.This is my first attempt to do cable..Without cable needles.Unfortunately,i don't have needle and yarn that match the pattern requirement.I hope anyone who read this posting can help me.I plan to knit this hat using 3mm double pointed needles and a Minlon 45g 100% acrylic yarn ( this is all i have at the moment).

The material for this hat is
  • about 50 grams Patons Classic Wool Merino (100% wool,223 yds/204 m per 100g skein)
  • 1 set US #8/5mm double pointed needles
  • tapestry needle ( i have this one from the biggest to the smallest size)

How many stitches i have to add or just cast on the stitches suggested ( cast on the larger size).Anyone please help me with this..

  1. wah...cable knit? wow.. saya sendiri belum cuba lagi..

    tapi kalau guna minlon, kena double atau tripple stitches dari pattern.. sebab benangnya kecik.

    kalau nak tau saiz sebenar, cuba buat "gauge" dlm pattern dulu sebelum mula knit.. baru dpt exact size
