I’ve also enjoyed knitting up this variation on the basic Pussy Hat with cabled ears!

Download the free Cabled Ears Hat pattern here!

It’s knitted in the round with circular needles.  I used 8 US, 16″ in length.  A super quick knit and really fun to see the cables take shape!

And check out more patterns by Robyn… love them!
