Cables Math Hat #1

I designed that hat even though the snow was melting and winter was almost over. I suppose there are still some cold days to come. I love the winter's end. Cables provide a stretchy fabric and I really like the tight fit of the adult S. I wanted the ribbing to be short and broken knit stitch really reminds me of cables somehow. The stitches are gracefully decreasing in the crown. I really love doing that kind of math! Since this is my first knit pattern written down I really hope it's understandable. I will definitely take more photos next time. Please feel free to leave a comment if you have any questions.
You will need superwash merino(I used Performance Merino Passion - Bulgarian yarn.) - bulky (120 gr, about 140m), 5 mm 40 cm circular needles for the body, 4 mm 40cm circular needles for the ribbing, cable needle, tapestry needle, scissors, stitch marker. Longer circular needles for decreasing or dpns. You can also use magic loop with longer circulars.
Gauge is 17 stitches in stockinette are 10 cm. Knit a few rows and measure

This is adult S in the images - it is a tight fit for adults.

The pattern is written in two sizes - teenage/adult S and adult Large - adult S (adult L).

How to read the pattern:
It is worked in the round. Slip the stitch marker when finishing a row. 
k2tog - this is knit 2 stitches together - right leaning decrease
ssk - this is slip slip knit - left leaning decreases
k2 - knit 2 stitches 
Think of the pattern as cables joined together. But even if you don't have much cable experience it's a great start. 

With 4 mm needles cast on 108 (126) using the long tail cast on. Place stitch marker and join for working in the round. 
Row 1 - 5: The ribbing is worked one knit stitch through the back loop (k1tbl), one purl stitch. It is broken rib stitch in the round. (For adult L you can make the ribbing 8 rows.)


The Body of the hat Change to 5 mm needles.
