Classic Designs for the Modern Knitter

New Pattern: Climbing Cables Hat

A perfect cabled hat, in time for fall. IMG_4909



I love cables, but the truth is I don't like to pull my cable needle out more than I have to.  It can hold things up, I want to move!  The cables on this hat climb in a pleasing fashion, and you only have to cable for 8 rounds for the child's size and 10 rounds for the 2 adult sizes.  Yeah!
