After unravelling that previous cable hat, I then knitted two more in a larger size.
They turned out pretty well. I used size 7 circular needles, Lion Brand wool-ease yarn in Oxford Grey, and casted on 108 stitches (instead of 96) with a cable cast on. I did a 3 inch ribbing brim on one and about a 2 3/4 inch brim on the other. For each one I did 4 repeats total of the cable pattern rounds 1-8, and I did an additional decrease round at the end for round 18. Pattern is from here.
