This pattern is designed for use with 1 skein of our dreamy CashSilk sock yarn in colorway: Still of the Night. Choose any colorway you like, though. You can also substitute any fingering weight yarn you like (our Resilient sock yarn for example), so long as it has at least some stretch.
SIZE: One size fits most adults. Approximately 10" from folded brim to crown and 18" circumference at brim, unstretched.
NEEDLES: US size 5 (3.75mm) in 16" circular, long circular for Magic Loop, and/or DPNs
Notes from the Designer:
•I wanted to knit a slouchy hat that would appeal to both women and men, and that would fit a variety of heads with minimal size adjustment.
•I loved this cable and rib pattern and decided that I could absolutely make a 40-row, 48-stitch repeat work in a fingering weight hat.
•I also love folded brims, so I decided to knit a deep brim and sew it to the inside of the hat to make the brim a little warmer around the ears. The result is a hat that has pretty much everything!
•I love the details, including crown decreases worked into the rib pattern as an interesting bonus.
--I binge watch a lot of random tv shows while I work, and recently I've been watching a lot of Game of Thrones. It took me ages to get past season 1, but I'm finally on board. I named this hat after Barristan Selmy, not because I think it's his style, but because I like his character, and I like alliteration. Barristan Beanie just sounds good. Plus, I like characters with smaller parts. Everyone has a part to play in life, even if it's not big and exciting. We can't all be the Mother of Dragons, but even a Queen's Guard can have a hat named after him.

One knitter commented that the hat slides up her head. Does that mean the hat it too tight? How many more stitches should be added--perhaps one between each cable for even distribution? I have not looked at the pattern yet.
Beautiful pattern. Can't wait to get started on it.
Another pattern I can't get to right now because I am such a ditz and have overloaded myself with future projects....but I can't wait to start. I just love your yarn and patterns.
My search for a not too slouchy, not too cably winter hat is over! Thanks!
Hey ty soo much for sharing pattern and yes I sneaked this one and made a beanie looks amazing. It's very generous to share such good material! ☺️
I did this to familiarize myself with cables. This was fun and easy enough to follow. My hat looks awesome. (My only complaint is that the hat tends to slide up my head and I'm not sure why. Maybe I seamed the edge too high up?) A tip for beginners like me: Pay attention to the cables the pattern calls for in each row. Double check each one.
I've got a lovely sock yarn to knit this in, shades of pale green, cream, light grey, and a pres stud bobble to match. Just love the suttle cables
I like the fact that this is a beautiful hat with only one skein of yarn. The cables are not over done ... just a few to add more interest.
I love the subtle cable
This is a great easy pattern. So much fun and the yarn. WOW oh WOW makes this pattern even more fun to knit. Love this hat.
Easy to follow, fairly quick pattern. As with all cables, one must pay attention. I would suggest Rnd 32 (2/2 RPC) be 2/2 RC (k2, k2). I couldn't live with the purl bump coming off the underside cable. Used CashSilk Sock and love the soft feel.
I love the one skein projects the best, that way I get to work with more beautiful yarn! Your patterns are always easy to follow and super cute! Thanks!
Beautifull snd easy
Great hat. Great pattern. Elegant, subtle, delightful to look at and fun to knit.
Love this pattern! Looking forward to doing this after making my Christmas presents!
