Big Boys Cabled Golf Cap

mooglyblog.com/boys-cabled-golf-cap-pattern/

By Tamara Kelly
My youngest (just turned 6!) has discovered a new interest in the sport of golf! Not that hes ever played on a real
course, but hes pretty sure his Wii Golf experience counts, and who am I to argue with that? So when he spotted a
skein of Red Heart Gumdrop and claimed it was for him, I knew exactly what to make a Big Boys Cabled Golf
Cap!

Red Heart Gumdrop is super easy to work with, so the crochet cables turned out great, and the colors are lots of
fun. If you want to substitute yarns, a worsted or aran weight ought to do the trick.

I loved making the cables for this hat, and I hope you do too! My stylish guy
had fun hamming it up for the photos too. Do you have a mini-golfer or flat
cap aficionado you crochet for? I look forward to your comments!
