Yup, I love it. Once you get the hang of the cables, it’s a breeze to make. AND it looks awesome! I made this for a cousin, and ended up making one for myself because I loved it so much.
Who, What, Where and all things info about the yarn:
I used a #4 medium yarn for this project, about 500 yards of the stuff. For the original hat, I used 2 skeins of Caron Simply Soft Tweeds. For my hat (the lavender one), I used Red Heart Super Saver. Really, you can use your favorite medium (aran, worsted) yarn.

You can choose to make the brim a different color, or you can continue working in the color on your hook for a solid-colored hat.
Round 1: BPDC, FPDC, BPDC, FPDC. Continue alternating between BPDC, and FPDC until you complete the round.
Round 2: You’ll be extending your posts, from the previous row, to create a ribbed look. So crochet a FPDC in each FPDC of the row, and a BPDC in every BPDC.
Repeat Row 3 until you make a brim in the width you desire.
Once you’ve completed the brim, weave in all your loose ends and cinch the top of the hat closed.
Alternating Posts Hat4.00$
Cinch the Top
To cinch the top closed: On the top (the side opposite the brim), you’ll sew in and out every few stitches all the way around the top of the hat so that when you pull the thread, the beanie will close. Pull the thread tight once you finish sewing and close the top of the hat. Sew back and forth across the closed part of the beanie to reinforce the closure stitches, and knot your yarn.
Weave in any remaining ends and you are finished. If you chose to add a pom pom, sew your pom onto your beanie.
