Interlinked Snow hat

One of my favorite movies is Blade Runner both the original and the 2049 reboot .  As I was making this hat, I could hear in my head, the Baseline Recalibration test that Officer KB6-3.7 would have to recite, every time I made one of the “interlinked” stitches in this hat.

Notes:

You will be asked to skip stitches to make cables lean left or right, however once the lean is created you will go back and work into those skipped stitches

In round 2,3,4 and 5 your hat will look like a ruffled circle. That will even out as your grow your hat.

Pattern

Make a magic circle.

Round 1.  SDC, place 23 (DC into the magic circle.   SL ST to the SDC. Pull the tail on the magic circle, but not too tightly (If you fully close the hat now, it will make it harder to see the stitches to create posts in later on). Total of 24  DC

Round 2. (In this round, you will place 3 DC’s into each stitch from round 1) SDC, make 2 DC in the same space.  Make 3 DC’s in each stitch, all the way around.  SL ST to the SDC.  You will have 72  DC.

Round 3. *SBPDC. FPDC in the next. 1 BPDC in each of the next two spaces. FPDC in the next. 1 BPDC in each of the next two ST. 1 FPDC in each of the next 4 ST. 1 BPDC in the next two ST.* Repeat until round is completed, substituting a BPDC for the SBPDS. SL ST to the top of the Standing BPDC.

Round 4. *SK the first ST. Standing FPDC in the next ST. Go back to the SK ST, place a BPDC around it. 1 BPDC in each of the next 2 ST. SK the FPDC from round 3. BPDC in the next ST. Go back to the SK ST, place a FPDC around it. BPDC in the next ST. 1 FPDC in each of the next 4 ST. BPDC in the next.* Repeat until round is completed, substituting a FPDC for the Standing FPDC.

Round 5. *Standing FPDC. 1 BPDC in each of the next 4 ST. FPDC in the next. BPDC in the next. SK the next 2 ST. 1 FPTrb in the next 2 ST. Go back to the first SK ST, place FPTrb in that space and in the second SK ST. BPDC in the next ST* (you have just created the twist in the cabled braid). Repeat until round is completed, substituting a FPDC for the Standing FPDC.

Round 6. *SK the first ST. Standing BPDC in the next space. Go back to the SK ST, and place a FPDC around it. Make 1 BPDC in the 2 ST. SK the next ST. Place 1 FPDC around the FPDC from round 5. Go back to the SK ST, place a BPDC in that space. BPDC in next space. 1 FPDC in each of the next 4 ST, being careful to pull up the ST in the correct order. BPDC in the next space.* Repeat until round is completed, substituting a BPDC for the Standing BPDC.

Round 7. *Standing BPDC in 1st space. SK ST. BPDC in the next ST. Return to SK ST, place a FPDC around ST. SK ST. FPDC around the next ST. Return to SK ST, and place BPDC around it. 1 BPDC around each of the next 2 ST. 1FPDC around each of the next 4 ST. BPDC.* Repeat until round is completed, substituting a BPDC for the Standing BPDC.

Round 8. *Standing BPDC. SK the next 2 ST. FPTrb around the next ST. Return to the first SK ST, place a BPDC in it. CONTINUE to leave the Sked FPDC from round 7, unworked. BPDC in the next unworked ST, it will be a BPDC from round 7. Return to SK ST, and place a FPTrb around it. (If done correctly, you will have created an X.) 1BPDC in each of the next two ST. SK the next 2 ST. 1 FPTrb in the next 2 ST. Go back to the first SK ST, place FPTrb in that space and in the second SK ST. BPDC in the next ST* (you have just created the twist in the cabled braid).* Repeat until round is completed, substituting a BPDC for the Standing BPDC. Take a deep breath, because you just completed the hardest round in this project.

Repeat Rounds 4 thru 9 to complete the hat. You can stop at any point in the repeats to get the length you wish. As a guideline I complete 24 for a women/teen size. For reference, that hat in the picture is on a 21 inch head, and has 24 rounds completed.

Finishing: Place a single round of SC around the edge. Weave in all ends.
