WIP - Cabled Hat
Alright, seems as if I just can't get enough of cables these days I began this a few days ago, someone from our KH community had been looking for a 'simple' cable pattern. I ran across this; a raveler had modified the pattern, beginning with a k1, p1 rib which I originally tried, but the fit was wrong for me. Considering the fact that I actually had a 1.5 needle I thought, why not, new skills and a completely different head band; I've learned to do a M1 increase, and to pick up stitches.

Super pretty. Learning to do the fancy cable patterns are next on my list. They look so scary to me!

Very pretty Claire! Acquiring new skills is a great BOGO when working a pattern, isn't it??

That looks way to good to be a learning project, you're surely joking. LOL I know you're not joking but it does look like you already knew what you're doing! Beautiful!

One more photo
It needs to be blocked and I'll have DH do a proper photo and post it as a FO. I wanted so badly to get a shot of this it was a little tricky using the bathroom mirror.

One of the first things I learned to do was cables, I suppose I didn't know enough about knitting to be afraid of them Until recently I always used a dpn to hold the cable stitches, then I would transfer them back to my left needle. Just this summer I purchased cable needles and will knit directly from them.

Historically for me it's been whatever works, but now with so many videos out there it's a lot easier to learn to be more efficient by watching how other people knit. Knittinghelp is such a great community, I've certainly become more confident since joining this site.

There is a simpler version of this hat here; it uses a ribbed edge, although I wouldn't discourage anyone from knitting the band on this.

That's really beautiful Claire, love the cable pattern, it's fantastic. Cables are one of those things that look really complicated but are actually very simple to do. This has been my first year of doing them too.
