Many people find cable knitting daunting at first. The idea of having three needles on the go at the same time and dropped stitches probably explains this initial apprehension.
Yet the cable knitting technique produces such beautiful and bold textures that it is hard to avoid as you progress with your knitting skills.
I have just finished production of two tutorials demonstrating the cable 4 back and cable 4 front techniques to help you get started with your cabling. Enjoy!
The days are now full of sunshine in Kyneton but the mornings are still chilly. The frosty mornings have seen me revisit a trusty old wrist warmer pattern I designed a few years. I have knitted these in grey and pink before but thought this lovely tangerine colour in the Marta’s Yarns Metro DK range would be a cheerful addition to my collection of mitts. These also look great worn with the palm section on the top of your hand and inside out too.
I am currently re-writing the pattern so that the wristwarmers can be knitted either in the round or on straight needles. In the meantime the circular pattern is available for purchase as a Raverly download.
