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.

I think these fit the bill...didn't inspect in depth though.

Aww, this is super cute!

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

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:

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

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.
