Crochet Hat for Babies - cable crochet

I wanted to crochet cabled hat for some time now and finally I have it ready. The pattern is for approximately 0-6 months old babies. The brim is very stretchy, which is good and the hat fits for longer. The hat is worked from the brim up to the top. The brim is worked in rows then joined together and folded. The hat is worked onto the brim and in the round. Beginning chains do not count as the 1st stitch for each round (and row) throughout the pattern. For example, at the end of a round, sl st join to the 1st stitch of the round not the beginning chain Difficulty level: Intermediate Size: 0-6   Circumference measurements notes: The measurements for the circumference are taken at the brim. The brim is stretchy and it is with few inches (cm) smaller than the head circumference for a nice and snug fit. Height measurements notes: The height is measured from the brim to the top after the brim is folded. Tension: The exact tension is not essential but it

Crochet Waves Stitch Tutorial

There are so many different ways to crochet wavy stitches but I really wanted to find something to look very close to the wave knitting stitch. This is one of the options I did try for now.
