My Hermione Hat

So I was watching Harry Potter and the Prisoner from Azkaban a couple of days ago(my favorite out of all the Harry Potter books) and I became obsessed with Hermione's Cable and bobbles hat. I knew there was a pattern for it in the Harry Potter knitting book, but I had no money and no way to get out and get the book, so I made the pattern from scratch. This will be the first one I have ever put to writing. Do what you want with it. make it and sell it it but please please please give me some credit for it!!

Hermione's Cable and Bobbles Hat

I used US8 circ/dp needles
and Lamb's Pride worsted ( the name of the color faded on the label so which ever color you want. Its actually more red than in the picture)

Guage: 4.5 sts/inch
Fits 21" circ.

-C6B=put 3 sts on cable needle and hold in back, K3,K3 on needle
-T4B=put next 2 purl sts on cable hold in back, K2,P2 on needle
-T4F=put next 2 knit sts on cable, hold in front, P2, K2 on needle

-CO 84
-K2P2 ribbing for 20 rounds, more if you want a thicker cuff.

-Do pattern twice before Decrease. I tried to keep with the pattern while decreasing, so it might seem a little more complicated than it should have been, but I was winging it!

  1. Help!! I was rolling along until I got to 'mB'. Please explain that stitch. Send explanation to mlaroche@sbcglobal.net

  2. Hello! I am so glad that you created this pattern! Thank you so much! I am just beginning to decrease and I just wanted to check some things out. I wanted to know what you meant by continue in pattern for rows 2,4, and 6 of the decrease. Do I just go back to the original pattern and repeat what I did in the previous 2,4,and 6 rows before the decrease starts or do I repeat the row before 2,4,and 6 in the decrease pattern? Thanks for your help! My email is alexgullic@gmail.com

  3. Hi hi! Much like larfamily above me, I was trudging along until I got to MB on row 10! Can you please email me your bobble explanation? indynikongal@gmail.com...also the explanation to Alex's comment as well? Thanks!
