A while ago I debuted the Big Boy’s Cabled Golf Cap as a free crochet pattern. And within the hour I had a bunch of requests for upsizing! I played around with different hooks and yarn weights, tried adding and subtracting rows, and now I finally have the details ready on how to make the Men’s Cabled Golf Cap, sized for a 23″ inch head – standard men’s size. Of course, women can wear this hat too – and if the brim is a little too big, try making the last couple brim rows with more tension or a smaller hook.

This cap is great for the full grown golfer or flat cap aficionado – my grandfather-in-law had an extensive collection, I wish I’d had the chance to make one for him. I hope you enjoy making this hat for the ones you love! And I want to give many kudos to my husband Geoff for playing model – he prefers working behind the camera and he was a great sport to model for me!

Materials List

  • US – J, 6.0 mm hook
  • 178 yards worsted weight yarn (Lion Brand Wool-Ease Worsted Weight in Grey Heather)

Finished Size

Size: 23″ head


Gauge: 5″ across after Round 5

Very nice pattern, I've seen it , tried to follow it but for some reason on the 2nd rnd it says there should be 24 st after fpdc but I still wind up with only 12.   Is there a video tutorial any where for it so I can see how they wind up with 24 fpdc st from 12 dc st.

@SmileyWitchFaerie  In the second round you do end up with 24 stiches. You first work a fpdc then a dc thus you have two stiches on one dc.
