Nights of the round Cable…

I’ve decided that I love cables! Who can fail to be entranced (and impressed) by the intricate designs with the almost Celtic influence, whilst even the simplest cable adds so much interest to a project.

So are you one of the Cable Cabal? The only problem I have is losing the cable needle – I frequently resort to stuffing it behind my ear, otherwise it has a disconcerting habit of disappearing of the face of the earth. I know that somewhere in space is a wormhole full of odd socks – could there be a similar one for cable needles???

Anyway, here’s a selection of patterns from some of my favourite projects.

Clockwise from top left we have earwarmer with fancy cable, scarf in reversible cable, snood and ear warmer (love the way the cable looks like it is sitting on top of the moss/seed stitch), fingerless mitts (mock cable cuff with cable owl), cafetiere/french press cover, sweater with cable detail.
