Crazy Lazy Cabled hat

Pattern Description:

I love the look of knitted cables. I have admired the classic cabled sweaters, the newer cables shawl designs, and the wonderfully complex Celtic cabled projects. I know how to work cables. I just don't enjoy making them the standard way. My solution? Color, of course! Color as cables? Who'da thunk it? But it is easily doable. No cable needle required. With only one light shade of color for the cable and somewhat darker shade of the same color for the background shadowing cables naturally form, you can create cables with color alone. No purling. Just knitting.

  • 50 g each of KnitPicks Palette or any fingering-weight wool: Cover: Mai Tai Heather and Kumquat Heather. Or choose a light and a dark shade of any one color. One 16" #3 circular needle, four #3 DPNs (or size needed to obtain gauge), stitch marker, and tapestry needle
