Cable knit beanie with fur pompom (+ the free knitting pattern I used)

For the longest time, I’ve wanted a chunky cable knit beanie topped with a big faux fur pompom.

I stared at other women’s densely cabled heads. Cosy! Autumnal! Hygge!

Last year, determined to make my cosy-head dreams come true, I bought a pompom and yarn and knit a hat… that was far too small. I wove in the ends and tried it on – or rather, tried to try it on, because it didn’t fit, not even a little bit. I’m am cursed with an enormous head – I wear a men’s size large bike helmet – but knit hats generally fit me.

Popping it off, I threw it at my sister-in-law’s normal-sized head. “Hey, free hat,” she said, catching it and tucking it in her pocket in case I changed my mind.

But I hadn’t given away the pompom, so I had to try again, didn’t I? Even though I’m not exactly short on hats.

The pattern I chose for round two is Winter Femme. It’s a free knitting pattern, and I really recommend it because it’s easy and looks so cute! This is actually the second time – or maybe third? – I’ve knit this pattern, so it flew along. Don’t bother hunting through my Ravelry projects – I didn’t bother recording it. Oh well. 

Not sure if this is the knitting pattern for you? I rounded up some suggestions for other cabled beanies here. 

I made the ribbing extra long so I could double it over for warmer ears.

The yarn is Alta Moda Cashmere which I’m not sure is the best choice for the cables because it’s chain-piled. Do the cables seem a little muted? But it’s lovely and soft.

Isn’t the pompom lush? I mean, it’s a bit silly,  but who cares? It’s cozy!

Here I am pretending to be a fashion blogger. I’m in beautiful Parc des Bastions, by the way. We often pass through on our usual coffee shop and record store loop to catch a few Pokemon. Unrelated, I’ve given up protesting that I’m not a hipster.

Hah! I don’t think I’m cut out to be a fashion blogger. I’d better stick to my knitting, as the saying goes. Here’s the only source we need here: Ravelry project.
