♫ The Music ♫
The Humours of Lisheen is a traditional Irish jig; its bouncy tune evokes images of ceilidh dancing and kitchen parties where dancing is always on the menu. The interweaving of the dance moves always bring cable knitting to mind.

A challenging cable project with closed-ring cables, this hat begins at the brim with a tubular cast on. Once the cable portion is complete, the crown is worked in Stockinette stitch.

Stitch pattern is charted only. A Helpful Links section is included in the pattern for further tutorials on the internet.

If you love this but wish it were in a worsted weight yarn, check out Lisheen Mor.

Finished circumference: 17.5 (20, 22.5)” / 44.5 (51, 57)cm.
Height: 8 (8.5, 9)” / 20.5 (21.5, 23)cm.

180 (200, 225)yds / 165 (183, 206)m fingering / sock yarn.

Sample shown in: Knit Picks Stroll (fingering; 75% superwash Merino wool, 25% nylon; 231yds per 50g) in Pumpkin 23699.

2.5mm / US1.5 needle(s) for small circumference knitting or size required to obtain gauge.
3mm / US3 circular needle 32” / 80cm or longer for tubular cast on or two sizes larger than gauge needle.

Gauge Note: Stitches are increased over the Lisheen Cable Pattern but, at the same time, more cables are crossed so the gauge of each horizontal Lisheen Cable Pattern repeat measures 1.25”/ 3cm consistently, whether it is a 14 or 18-st repeat.

32 sts and 44 rows = 4” / 10cm in Stockinette stitch in the round, blocked, using gauge needle.

14-18 sts = 1.25” / 3cm and 24 rows = 2.25” / 5.5cm in Lisheen Cable Pattern in the round, blocked, using gauge needle.
