I’ve always had a love for knitwear, & since my taught module at university in first year on knitting, I’ve taken up a slightly unhealthy obsession about knitwear! I currently own, well lets say a lot of cardigans!
Okay so recently I decided to knit myself a headband (slight obsession with these lately!). Luckily for me my mother is amazing at knitting and has been teaching me (very on & off) throughout the years how to knit. I started off around the age of 7, knitting myself scarf after scarf. As you can imagine, they weren’t very good! I’d start off with 30 stitches and end up with 10. But with this recent head band, I must say I have improved a great deal!
I tried out a cable knit, it seemed quite confusing at first, but after watching my mothers tutorial for a good 5 minutes I easily picked it up (with only a few dropped stitches, which I luckily rescued!).
Here’s a picture of how far I’ve gotten, bare in mind I’ve only been working on this for about four days in total! 🙂
I know, I know – Don’t laugh!
Well, I’ve complied together a collection of some of my favourite Cable Knits this season for you.. Enjoy!
