This cabled hat features straightforward six-stitch cables see Chapter 6. You need six stitch markers to help keep your decreases lined up. Using the smaller circular needles, cast on 66 72, 78, 90 sts. Repeat this round for 1 1, 2, 2 inches. In other words, you should cable every 6th round even though the decreasing is occurring too.

Switch to double-pointed needles when there are too few sts on the needles to knit comfortably. Continue repeating these 12 rounds until only 8 sts remain. Continue working even on these 8 sts to the end of the 6-round stripe if necessary. Cut an 8-inch tail and, using a yarn needle, thread it through the remaining sts, pulling gently to gather them in.
Run the yarn through the sts once more, and then weave in the tail on the inside. To make the tassel, start by wrapping the yarn around a paperback topic about 40 times. Cut the yarn and wrap the tail tightly around all the strands a couple of times. Then tie with a firm knot, leaving the tail to use later to attach the tassel to the hat. Slip the rounds of yarn off the topic and wrap a 1-foot length of yarn around the tassel 1 inch below the knot. Pull firmly before knotting in place. To attach the tassel, thread the tail of yarn from the tassel onto a yarn needle. Insert the needle through the tip of the hat and pull the yarn through.
Bring the needle through the base of the tassel. Insert the needle into the tip of the hat, bringing the yarn to the inside and then knot it firmly in place. If you want to knit this hat with a different weight yarn, use Table to figure out your cast-on number, and then follow the directions in the basic pattern. You can use more than one color of yarn which is a great way to use up your odds and ends! Knit the ribbing with needles that are two sizes smaller than the needles you use to get the gauge needed for the body of the hat. Begin decreasing when the hat measures 4 inches.
Place your markers as follows for your gauge: 3 sts per inch: K11 12, 13, 14, 16 , place marker, k22 24, 26, 28, 32 , place marker, knit to end of round. Follow the round color and decrease pattern outlined in the basic pattern. The pattern for this bag presents you with lots of options. The featured pattern is for the mosaic purse, but if you want your bag striped or plain, check out the later variations.
A plain purse can be stunning if you adorn it with a brooch, knitted flowers, or needle-felted designs. Craft stores and yarn shops carry beautiful ready-made handles that can jazz up any bag. Or you can knit the handle with the bag. This pattern gives you both options. Figure The felted mosaic purse and tote.
