Instead of packing more today I decided to take a break and dig out my new cable needles. I picked them up at A Likely Yarn before I headed up to Maine and hadn’t yet had a chance to use them. And since i’ll be putting the shop back on vacation mode while we move I thought it’d be nice to be able to re-open the shop with some really cool new stuff. Like cabled coffee cup cozy’s!
I also want to start doing video tutorials on my website, but that’ll take a bit longer to get started.
Today i’m sharing with you my first cabling project and the pattern will be at the end of the pictures.
Cabling is a lot easier than I thought it would be! My only difficulty is forgetting to count! haha but this is my simpler than the lace patters I’ve been working on recently.
- Needles: Size 7 bamboo yarn (same size I use for dish cloths) + a cabling needle
- Yarn: 100% Peruvian Highlands Wool
and a bit of patience is all you need ❤
worked over 12sts
Rows 1, 3 and 5 (RS) K12
Rows 2, 4 and 6 P12
Row 7 C6B, C6F
Row 8 as Row 2
And I’ll of course be uploaded a finished picture when I’m done ❤ and will hopefully have a whole bunch to add to the shop when all this moving craziness has settled.
