Basic cables project?
I need an uncomplicated pattern to learn basic cables. I'm good at hats, dishcloths etc. I've searched Rav but nothing floats my boat.

Help

Here are a couple of patterns that I really like:

I looked at the original hat, and I thought it may be too complicated, then saw a revised version here:

Nine Cables Slouchy Hat

The cable pattern used in this dishcloth is one of my favorites:

Cables and Lace Dishcloth

Waffling Owls is super cute! Thanks for the link. I've actually done a cable owl and have wanted to do more.

Here's the hat I just cast on tonight, speaking of owls... Short cables are perfect to start out with! Uncomplicated and I get to play with my buttons to find the perfect eyes.
