Cable Comeback

Besides lace, cables are my very favorite thing to knit.  I love the way that simply by changing the order of the stitches, a completely complex pattern emerges.  And much like colorwork, I always want to do “just one more row” of the pattern.

Today, the Winding Road hat is making a comeback.  It’s a design originally made for a yarn company that, sadly, went out of business.  They had a lovely Corriedale used for the original hat.  I loved this hat and didn’t want it to disappear simply because the yarn had, so it’s been reworked and the pattern has been re-written with new charts and new photos and it now comes in two sizes instead of just one.

This one has been worked up in Plucky Knitter Primo Worsted in color Wintry Mix.   Primo Worsted is a wonderful blend of Merino, cashmere and nylon that’s perfect for hats.  And it takes less than one skein!

A coupon code for a free download of the pattern was sent to subscribers of the Paper Moon Knits newsletter.  It’s good until the 15th of this month.  If you’re not a subscriber, you can still get the code by signing up for the newsletter here.   My little gift for all of you who come along with me.
