I decided to put aside my current (frustrating) project for a bit and knit myself something relatively quick and easy. I decided to make this pattern:
Celtic Cable Neck Warmer
It occurred to me that this might be a really good pattern for a knitter who wants to learn cables. The reasons why:
- There are four types of cables in the pattern, all very straightforward.
- Gauge isn't super important, so you can concentrate on learning the cables and not have to worry about it.
- It's not huge, so you won't feel like it will take you forever to do (it only takes about 130 yards of worsted weight yarn).
- The chart is really well designed.
So if you're new to cables or want to learn them, I'd take a look at this pattern.
