Summer School – Cables – Circumvolute

I’m taking a bit of time off this month, but I wanted to make sure you had something to do while I’m napping (or, more likely, sweeping out the garage, getting drywall dust  out of my cabinets, or planning next year’s projects…but napping sounds better).

On Mondays, I’ll introduce a topic or skill and provide a bunch of links and resources to help you learn more. Later in the week, I’ll show off a few favorite patterns so you can do some homework.  The featured patterns will be on sale for one day each, so come back each weekday to see if there’s something that catches your eye!

Ok, I’m starting you out easy.  Circumvolute is all about very very very mellow cables, and not too many of them.  If you’ve never ever done a cable before, you can start here and you’ll be cruising away in no time.  It’s just crossing one stitch over one other stitch.  You can’t possibly be scared of something that only uses two stitches.  You can totally do this!

It’s also a perfect place to try cabling without a cable needle (that’s easiest on tiny cables, and these are as tiny as cables come).  Plus there are two versions of the hat in there, so you’ve got double the chances to practice.

And if you’re already a cable pro, well then you can just appreciate how ridiculously cute they are (and how amazing they look with speckled yarn, because that is totally a thing).

Circumvolute is 25% off just for today with the code SUMMER SCHOOL (technically, it’s 12:01 am to 11:59 pm eastern time on Tuesday, July 2, 2019 if you want to get very particular).  Come back tomorrow for another cable favorite!
