Shells and Cables Hat Pattern

Well I FINALLY got this wrote out! I started it when I was making the last hat and lost the draft. So as I was making another of these hats last night, I wrote it up as I went! Oddly enough, all 4 hats that I've made with this pattern, the recipient wanted sparkly yarn. I've had one blue, 2 green, and now a black!

So here you go! I really hope you enjoy this hat as much as I do! Can't say that I have one for myself, I don't look good in hats, but I do enjoy the look of it.

Materials:
-Any worsted weight yarn, I used the "I love this yarn" from Hobby Lobby and it works great!
-H hook
-Yarn needle

Fpdc - Front post double crochet
This is to fit teenager through adult. The pattern could definitely be altered to fit smaller I'm sure!

Row 1: 11 Dc in ring

Row 2: Ch 2, 2 Dc in each Dc around, join in top of Ch 2

  8. The first time I tried this pattern I was a little confused (as a beginner). I literally fpdc in the very next dc, instead of the one in the middle with gaps (from Row 8). The second time, I understood the pattern more clearly and I successfully finished the hat last night. I loved it! Was supposed to be for a Christmas gift, but since there are small errors (is the row where you join supposed to look like a fpdc or lay flat with the rest of the hat?), I may keep it and just make more in a variety of warm colors. The one I want to keep is in a beautiful warm-toned gold ( Autumn Maize). Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful pattern!

  10. I agree with the last comment! My hat looks great, but it turned out much bigger than the one you made. It turned into a really pretty slouchy hat.

  11. I agreed with Anonymous Dec. 24th comment. I will be great to know how many stiches you should have at the end of each row.
