C is for CABLE STITCH

                                                 CABLED HAT 

One of the best stitches to learn (after knit and purl that is) is the cable stitch.  It is surprisingly easy and yet looks like something really difficult.  I have searched the web (youTube) and found a really cute video that was made by a young mom (with cute kid, with cute cable hat) that can teach you this very easy and versatile stitch. 


Isn't it great how you can learn almost anything from great YouTube videographers?  Hmm wonder about surgery, possibly!!

The two scarves below, I made using variations on the cable stitch and they were very easy or else I wouldn't have done them.  As always click on the titles for the link to the FREE PATTERNS.

  1. Nice, but I have to learn knit and purl first. Soon, and then I can start looking at these patterns. I'm excited!

  2. Good for you. I can't cable, knit, or stitch a darned sock.

  4. I like the green hat. It sure takes some talent!! I can't knit. That video was mind boggling. I just don't have what it takes to learn it...and yes, I've tried but my mind just can't wrap it. LOL. Nice Post!!

    Cheers, Jenn

  5. Visiting from A/Z; I remember when I was knitting years ago doing the cable stitch for a sweater; you are right, it is relatively easy to do and the effect is really nice! Good luck with the rest of the challenge!

  6. I have two left hands when it comes to knitting...it always amazes me what people can make with yarn... Stopping by from the A-Z challenge.

  7. Someone tried to teach me to knit once. It lasted all of 5 minutes before I gave up on the tangled mass of wool and called it a day. These hands are meant for three things: blogging, origami and making sandwiches.

  8. *Stopping by from A to Z. I love your theme! Learning to knit is on my bucket list. I've always wanted to sign up for the intro classes offered through our community college, but never have. Now you have me wondering if I could teach myself through YouTube!
