I finally got some time to knit up some of my stash yarn into a new original design, Noose.
It really was the first time I just had fun experimenting with cables. Now don't get me wrong, I've always knitted cables, (and in fact have a cabled beauty in the next issue of Vogue Knitting) but only exactly if I knew what i was doing, I knew how it would look, and I knew there would be no surprises. I don't know why, but for some reason cables have always intimidated me. There's just something so, I don't know...complicated-looking? And if I had to rip them out?? Forget it. But suddenly one night I just said, "Alright cables. It's YOU AND ME." So we had it out. Now I'm not scared anymore. I even got a little carried away and made a full scarf version of the scarflette above:
And you get them both with the pattern. So download yours here and lose your fear of cables.. (if you had any).
