For this Interweave Cable Stitch Slouch Hat project you will need:
HOOK: 5 mm / H hook and a 6 mm / J hook
YARN: 2 Skeins of worsted weight yarn. I used 230 yards / 100 gram skeins. And total yarn used I estimate about 300 grams total.
You will also need a pom pom maker, or make yourself one like I did. See how with this video. “How to make a Pom Pom Maker https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a13bFAFauPc
A tapestry needle to hide your yarn
Ch = chain
sl st = slip stitch
beg st= beginning stitch
sk 2 sts = Skip Two Stitches
sc = single crochet
sc dec= single crochet decrease
TRC = Triple Crochet
DC = Double Crochet
FPDC = Front Post Double Crochet
BPDC = Back Post Double Crochet
This stitch is done in multiples of 4
NOTE: CORRECTION: Correction the multiple of this stitch is 4, so any number divisible by 4 will work. Better to make your beginning chain 68 or 72 to begin with for adults. I am changing the pattern to reflect this change.

ch 3, and FPTRC on the post of the first and second Dc. Then going in from behind the FPTRC’s that you just did, back up and do FPTRC in the two dc’s that you skipped. Do this by pulling the stitch upward before working your stitch on it. Use pictures below to help you understand.
Repeat for rest of round, sl st into top of the beg ch 3.
Ch 3 and FPTRC on the post of the next two TRC’s, then back up and TRC on the two TRC’s. Do this by pulling the Stitches forward. See picture below.
continue around and sl st in the top of the beg ch 3.
Repeat round 7 only you’ll be using the TRC’s instead of the DC’s. Look at the picture under round 7 to help.
Repeat this all the way around until your hat reaches from rim to last row worked 25 cms or 10 inches. When you reach this length, sl st in the beg st and…
Then time to reduce! Change back to your 5mm / H hook
For the next two rounds * sc , then sc dec * repeat for two rounds total.
Then turn your hat inside out and slip stitch loosely, watch your tension and using the back stitches only, slip stitch your hat closed. Then chain one and cut your tail and hide it.
Make two pom poms using the recommended video above. The home made ones I made using a 8 centimeter / 3 inch circle.
