My first cable hat

With this hat I learned how to knit cables. I’m soooo happy and satisfied :))

This is how it started... This weekend my friend visited me and said that she likes a new knitted rasta hat so I helped her to find one on Ravelry. We found this pattern. My mum told us that it is very easy to knit a cable and she taught us how to make them. The same day I started knitting а hat for me, but with 12 cables instead of 6 because the yarn was thin. 
And here are the results...
