Cable Hat


Don’t be put off by the pattern for this lovely hat! It looks more confusing than it actually is! The pattern is just a series of cables that, due to the thickness of the yarn, need to move slowly, round by round, gradually climbing up the hat meaning there are more ‘cable rows’ than you would normally see in a pattern like this. Because of the travelling nature of the cables, there are a few occasions where you need to work the cable over the beginning and end of the round. At these points, the end of the round is moved by one or two stitches. Don’t get too concerned with this… it all works out in the end!

Plump Superchunky and Plump DK are made from the highest quality superfine merino and baby alpaca.  These really are special and luxurious fibres and should be treated carefully!  Having said that both yarns are suitable for delicate hand washing.  Use a specialist detergent and do not agitate or twist the fibres to retain the gorgeous softness and shape of your garment.

Because of the roving nature of our yarns (they are single ply, rather than tightly twisted), some shedding may occur.  The best way to deal with this is spray your finished garment with water and leave to dry flat, naturally before the first wearing.  This sets the fibres and should stop any problems.  If you want any further advice just drop us a line at [email protected]

Using your yarn
All our yarn comes in skeins.  Before using you need to wind the skein into a ball or you will get into an awful tangled mess!  If you are not sure how to do this you can watch our video here!
