Cabling…without a needle!

Start of Koolhaas Hat

This is the yarn I won last September from Amanda*. I’ve been waiting for the perfect project and finally realized that I could double the yarn and use it for the Koolhaas hat!

The other night Stacey showed me how to do the cables without a cable needle. It does make the pattern go faster, but I’m still a little nervous about dropping the stitch! I guess I will get plenty of practice on this hat :)

*If you’d like to see some more yarn that Amanda dyes, check out her Etsy shop!

    Cabling without a needle and doubling the yarn – I am not so brave, but I know you can do it! The hat looks great already! Please show progress pics/FO!
