The Cable Craze

After viewing patterns during the Christmas season, I noticed that cables were everywhere. My sister found a scarf in Walmart and said, "Hey can you make this?" I looked at her like she was crazy and replied, "Yes but it would take some work." We moved on. Then when I went to work, I searched online (just to see what was available) for a crochet cable scarf pattern. I was able to find one and then I became frightened. Well, guess what??? I jumped in. That's right I am working on my first pattern containing cables. It's the Hooded Baby Sweater from www.freepatterns.com I love it. One of my assistant headmasters just had a baby girl so I am planning on gifting the set to her or adding it to my completed project bin. I'll post a picture in a few.

Happy Hooking.

I'm looking forward to seeing your sweater! I have yet to attempt cables - they scare me, ha, ha! Crochet Magazine had a pattern recently (about two months ago) for a really nice cabled scarf you might like.

I hope you're feeling better!

That Baby Sweater is going to be adorable and thanks for the link.

Don't yell at me, but I didn't know you could cables with crochet. I guess that shows how ignorant I am. I've doing this for almost 20 years and I still have a lot to learn. I'm also looking forward to the picture.
