Are you afraid of cables? I know a lot of newer knitters are because they look so intricate and difficult, but they really aren’t hard at all. Once you understand that cables are just a way of working stitches in a different order than how they are normally on the needle you’ll find that it’s not a big deal at all.
The Afraid of Cables hat from KnitPicks is a great way to learn if you haven’t tried a cable knitting project before. Or even if you have, this is a great, quick knitting project, made with a skein of bulky yarn, that’s great to have in your file for gifting.
Designed by Brenda Castiel, the hat is worked from the bottom up and comes in one size for adults.
You can grab the free pattern — and pick up yarn at as little as $7 for the project — at KnitPicks.
