Laura's Hermione's Cable & Eyelet Hat

My friend Laura is a a huge Harry Potter fan. We once tried (foolishly) to have a marathon and watch all of the movies in one sitting (we made it through the first two). I could not imagine a better pattern to use than "Hermione Loves Ron" the hat Hermione wore in the movie Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

I want to use Sidar Country Style DK wool (machine washable - 45% Acrylic, 40% nylon, 15% wool) in Color 423 (dusky pink) and size 3 knitting needles. There are two patterns for this Hermione hat, one using worsted weight wool and another with sport weight (this one is available for free at Ravelry, but you have to make a free account).

I like the way the ribbing looks on the WS more than the RS, so I inverted the project after this row. When weaving in the loose ends I took care of the tiny hole.

I did 5 repeats of the cable/lace instead of 4. I suppose that this makes the hat longer than it appears on Emma Watson in the movie, but I preferred to make this a hat versus a cap.

Enjoy the hat, Laura!


  1. This hat is beautiful, I wish I knew how to knit well with knitting needles. Does anyone know if you can do it with a knifty knitter?

  2. I don't know much about knifty knitters.. but if you can cables yarnovers and decreases, then you should be able to do this hat on one!

  3. Did you also shorten some sections?

    1. I did not shorten any sections, I just added an extra repeat of the cabled section.
