This cable stitch hat hanger is the perfect fix for any clutter of accessories. I’d have seen cap organisers on Pinterest with some different crochet, macrame and knitted designs.

I hadn’t tried cable crocheting but always loved the look. They consist of front post and back post stitches which I have tried in the textured hat pattern. But getting this 3D textured look via cables always seemed super confusing.

The Unraveled Mitten had a fantastic tutorial on cable crochet which clear pictures and a great video breaking down the steps.

Cable Stitch Hat Hanger Tips

Drops Paris yarn in pink with the first few rows of the cable stitch aht hanger
  • This pattern is one size for all
  • Please use Aran yarn with 4mm hook so the stiches are tight
  • The base of the pattern uses Trebles and the cables use Double Trebles
  • There are a total of 7 different stitches used
    • Chains (CH)
    • Trebles (TR)
    • Double Trebles (DTR)
    • Front Posts (FP)
    • Back Posts (BP)
    • Crab Stitch for the bars that the hat rest in (CRB)
    • iCord across the top to hang from (you can also use a simple Chain)
  • The project starts at the bottom and works upward
  • For each row, the Chain 2 does not count as a stitch. This will build the height and avoid gaps in the work
  • When you see INC, this means to increase so you work 2 of the same stitch in 1 place
