Itsy Bitsy Cabled Hat

Made this to go with the Bitty Cabled Cardigan before I realized there was already a companion hat. D'oh! But, honestly, I like my hat just a bit better.  

Itsy Bitsy Cabled Hat

Leaving a 5" length of yarn, cut the yarn and weave through the remaining stitches using tapestry needle. Pull tight. Weave in ends. Block.

If desired, use a size F crochet hook to create a 10-link chain. Fold in half, and thread both ends through top center of cap to create a loop. On wrong side, tie the ends into a double knot to secure and weave in ends.
