Cabled pom-pom hat

Most of my inspiration comes from the word around me and lately I have been attracted by those cute cabled hats with a pom-pom on top. I love their pattern, it makes them so cozy, soft and warm, perfect to accessorize every winter outfit and what to say about pom-poms? They look so funny and always put me in an amazing mood!!

Looking here and there on the web, I found out it is possible and quite easy to achieve the cabled texture even with a crochet hook. It only takes a bit of practice with front-post and back-post stitches, but once you ‘ve learned the technique you will even be able to design  your own pattern. In my case I went for a classic, a braid cabled pattern to make a hat 21 cm long which fits a head circumference of approximately 55-57 cm.

I have used my trusty 6 mm hook and 150 gr of Katia Cotton Merino yarn in this beautiful grey shade. I love the way the grey and white shades blend in with the braided pattern.
