Pattern for Twisted Brains

Twisted Brains by Julie Kinsey


Supplies:
1- 16 " circular needles size 10
Set of 5 DPNs - Size 10
Cable needle
Yarn needle for finishing
1 ball bulky (5) weight yarn (Brand used in sample is Bernat's Softee Chunky)



Abbreviations:
K- knit
p- purl
s2K- slip two stitches knit wise
s2p- slip two stitches purl wise
K2tog- knit 2 sts together
p2tog- purl 2 sts together
2LT - (Left twist) Slip 2 sts to cable needle and hold in front, p2, then k2 from cable needle
2RT- (Right twist) Slip 2 sts to cable needle and hold in back,K2, then p2 from cable needle






This hat should fit an head sizes 19" - 22". It has a good deal of stretch to it. If you would like it to fit closer, then cast on with smaller needles for ribbing then switch to larger needles for the cable pattern.

Cast on 84 sts with US size 10, 16" circular needle. Join in round, being careful not to twist work. Place Contrasting marker to mark beginning of the round.
K2, p2 for 5 rounds.

Cabled pattern: (worked over a series of 12 sts)
There is always a round of moving the twists and a round of stabilizing the twists.
There will be a point when you will need to jog two sts over the marker in a cable twist. Always carry yarn behind the work when doing this. just jog the the sts then replace marker after the two sts are jogged. Continue in next round.

round 1: *{K2, p4, 2RT} (so that you are k 2, p4) - *repeat until end of round
round 2: *{K2, p4} - *repeat until end of round
round 3: *{2LT, 2RT,p4} - *repeat until end of round (pattern will be p2, {K4, p8} repeats then p4)
round 4: p2, *{K4,p8} - * repeat until end of round. there will be 4 sts left, p those
round 5: *{2RT, p2, 2LT} * repeat until end of round.
round 6: *{K2, p4} - * repeat until end of round.
round 7: s2K, p4, *{2RT, p4, 2LT} - * repeat until end of round. last 4 sts are 2LT
round 8: *{p8, K4} - * repeat until end of round. last 2 sts of this row will be transferred to next round in the 2LT
round 9: *{2LT, p4, 2RT, p4} - * repeat until end of round.
round 10: *{K2, p4, 2RT}- *repeat until end of round (this is back to the beginning of pattern)

Repeat cable pattern until work measures 6 inches. This should be when the pattern is p2, {K4, p8} just after the twist
Switch to DPNs and divide sts evenly

Begin decrease:
round 1: *{p2tog, K4, p2tog, p6} - *repeat until end of round ~ 70 sts
round 2: *{K4, p6} *repeat until end of round
round 3: s2p *{K4, p2tog, p4, p2tog} *repeat until end of round the last p2 will use the first sts of the round~ 56 sts
round 4: *{k4, p4} *repeat until end of round
round 5: *{2LT, p2tog, p2, p2tog} *repeat until end of round ~ 42 sts
round 6: *{K4, p2} *repeat until end of round
round 7: *{K2tog, K2tog, p2} - *repeat until end of round ~28 sts
round 8: *{K2, p2} - *repeat until end of round
round 9: *{K2tog, p2tog} - *repeat until end of round ~14 sts

Cut yarn, leaving a long tail. Using yarn needle thread yarn through last 14 sts twice and draw closed tightly. Weave in ends.

Here's the pattern as a jpeg file with cable graph:
