How To Crochet A Hat: Mock Cable Hat

Introducing the Mock Cable Hat for women. It’s a really neat concept as it’s uses the Jacobs Ladder Concept for the brim. There is two Jacobs Ladders that slink around the outside of the brim. For me, just making that element makes me giggle with excitement.

The buttons are for decorative reasons but act as a hiding spot for where the jacobs ladder starts and finishes. So it’s an element of necessity but hidden by decorative buttons.

Regina Darlin says:

I love your tutorials and love the way you encourage improvising at times, because I’m definitely not a perfect crocheter and make mistakes often lol. Nothing that ruins the project but sometimes it throws off counts. I’m glad you are ok with fixing as you go instead of tearing it all out, as I’ve actually had some crocheters tell me to do. Thanks for being awesome, funny, and most of all realistic to the life of crochet

Thinking this would be great for my sister-in-law who is going through chemo for breast cancer. If it turns out I might make extra. Thanks to Mikey, I believe I can do it.

MrsCondee says:

What a great video Mikey! I would never have been able to understand the written instructions without the video but now, I can hardly wait to try this! I don’t think I have any yarn on hand that would be big enough, though…so now, I just have to wait until the roads are clear and I can go buy some yarn. Thank you!
