I’ve always enjoyed knitting cables, I find them more intuitive than lace where I can get horribly lost, but when I designed the Heart’s End Hat pattern and Miss Havisham Mittens closed-loop cables were new to me. With closed-loop you can use a stand alone motif rather than an all over pattern, just enough to practise on.
Miss Havisham Regrets
If you wanted to try out closed-loop cables I’ve produced this video to explain the increase and decrease I used in the patterns which may be new to you too.
Apologies for the lack of production values, as was out first attempt. It was filmed by Alan, my husband hanging over my shoulder and he’s very disappointed there are no credits, so thank you Alan!
