My newest pattern, Liebevoll, features cables worked sideways, using a technique Barbara Walker described as Closed Ring Cables. These are fun and easy to work but the charts to include a few increase and decrease symbols you might not have come across before.
Here are a few very simple videos if you’d like a visual of how they’re worked.
These are a like a standard 4 stitch cable smooshed together with a decrease. There’s a bit of rearranging of stitches involved but the results are really smooth, with the decrease less visible than it is if you work a standard cable with a decrease on the following row. I prefer to work them without a cable needle so both options are shown.
.... And it's a big one! Usually, the sale runs across a set number of days and things get pretty fast paced around here with shipping and customer service emails. With the need to continue to prioritise staff safety and a smaller team than usual, we decided to make this a whole birthday month.
