I’m not sure if this is the right forum, but I could use some help.

I want to knit a hat for my son’s GF in worsted weight (Knit Picks Swish Worsted). I’ve begun the hat with 96 stitches on US size 4 DPNs, and have done 1.5 inches in 2 x 2 rib. Here’s the question:

I’d really like to make the rest cabled, but I’m horrible at math. Can someone point me to a pattern that would fit the 96 stitches and size 4 DPNs, or can someone tell me how to do the math for the cables so that it will come out right? I want it to be a beanie-type hat, not to bulky, so I don’t want a whole bunch of cables - I was thinking maybe four?

I then also need help with the decreases for the hat. Would the cables stop before the decrease rounds begin?

I’ve only done cables in scarves, never in hats before.

Thanks for the help - I was hoping to get this whipped out for her for Christmas.
