About a year ago I bought myself a cabling needle but was yet to put it into use because, as usual with trying new techniques, I thought it would be very difficult. And as usual it turns out I was very wrong and it is actually much easier than it looks. I finally started giving it a go recently with the help of some books and YouTube videos and I've been experimenting with lots of different types of cabling. As a result I designed this chunky ear warmer head band.
It is quite slow growing as every other row is cabled but it creates a lovely plaited effect. As a result of the cabling it also comes out pretty thick so keeps the ears super warm. It has a fair amount of stretch so make it a bit smaller than your head size and it will stretch on and stay put. I've used DK yarn but I want to make one with chunky yarn now to make an more bulky ear warmer.
The pattern is available as a free download from my Knitting Pattern page, HERE.
