Bead and Cable Hat

Bead and Cable Hat

(Pattern edited 10/2/09. Corrected description of bead single crochet, did not change pattern directions.)

Finished size, approximately 18″ around and 7″ in height using worsted weight yarn and a G hook. Would be slightly bigger using an H hook.

String 27 pony beads on yarn before starting to crochet.

Notes: Sc rounds are wrong side of hat. Start turning after each joined round on round 3.

Special stitch: bsc = bead single crochet. Insert hook into stitch, pull thread through, bring bead up close to hook, thread over, with bead between hook and thread, and pull through remaining 2 loops. In other words, do a normal single crochet, but add the bead before pulling through the last 2 loops.

Rnd 1. Ch 2, sc 6 in 2nd ch from hook, join. (6 st)

Rnd 2. Ch 3 (counts as first dc), 2 dc in same st, 3 dc in each sc around, join. (18 st)

What is a bsc stitch?

Also, do you thread the pony beads onto the yarn at the beginning?

Thanks for the questions. bsc is a bead single crochet stitch. I will add an explanation in the pattern. And yes, you string the beads on first. I will also add that step.

Is this written in UK terms? Because the directions you give for the bsc are for what I call a double crochet. With a single crochet you only pull through two loops on hook once.

Thank you for pointing this out, Wanda, I will make that correction. It is written in US terms.

You’re welcome. I have done some bead crochet and decided it was US terms so am working on one right now.

Let me know how it turns out. I’ve only written about 4 or 5 patterns, so I’m still a novice and appreciate any feedback. šŸ™‚

I love the looks of this pattern but am a bit unsure of the instructions. round 4 1 tr around dc on round 2. can you explain how this is done please.. thank you

Hi Denise;

What you do is you put your hook “around” the dc in the stitch below instead of through the top loops of the dc below as you would normally do. This is what makes the “cables.” The hook goes behind the dc which pulls it forward. It’s hard to describe. Let me know if this is still unclear.

Thanks for your question.
