I believe nothing shows you care like a hand knitted gift. Casual knitting is one of my favorite things to do. But finishing a knitting project, wooof, that’s a commitment My mother has always said, “Never knit a man a sweater unless there is a ring on your finger.”
This is something (“Something” being the operative word) that I had been knitting on for weeks. What was it? Couldn’t tell you…
So I tore it out and made my boyfriend a hat to keep his little bald head warm.
I totally made up the pattern but it is very easy. Just make a gauge and then measure the head you are knitting for and subtract 1/2 an inch. The pattern repeat is 14 stitches so you can figure out how many stitches to cast on:
Row 1: K1, P2, K1, P2, K6 (This is your cable), P2,
Row 2: K4, P2, K6, P2
Row 3: Repeat row 1
Row 4: Repeat row 2
Row 5: K1, P2, K1, P2, C3 front, K3, K3 off cable needle, P2
Repeat these five rows until it is time to decrease.
Row 1: K1, P3 x number of repeats
Row 2: K3, P1 x number of repeats
ONE IS NEVER ENOUGH! So I made Ricky a scarf too. This yarn is alpaca *sigh* and a dream to knit with.
