Ginger cables

A simple cabled hat also using magic looping.

10 cable hat

Specs, quickly, since it only took me a three-four hours to knit.

Yarn: The same Shepherd Cynthia Helene that I won from Nona when she was giving away some of her stash last year. Still some left over, which I’m hoping will make some socks or booties or mittens.

Needles: Denise #8/5mm with magic loop from this site. Nothing to it! Cabling with a needle, not without.

Pattern: Hey Julie’s pattern, the one with 10 cables. I preferred how it looked to the 5 cable one.

Time: 3-4 hours.

Size: 8.5″around (about 19″ circumference, which makes it giant-baby-head size, but that’s okay, I think. My friend can wear it otherwise. 🙂

Extra: #1 Not much! Law & Order: SVU coming up, gotta run.

Here’s Teddy in the meantime.

Sweater and hat

In love with sewing, weaving, crochet, and with bags and pouches and fabric. I love colour and pattern and texture. I love having my hands busy. Some day I hope my craft will become my day job.
