Pattern Description:

I love the Saxon Braid cable pattern and thought it would make a great cap. The tricky part was figuring out how to graft the cable in pattern (illustrated instructions are included in the pattern). This 11-page pattern includes both written instructions and a chart for knitting the cable strip (you can use either or both); written instructions for picking up stitches and knitting the crown and bottom edging of the cap, with three edging options (including one I call Braided Bind-Off, which I haven't seen before); pictures of the completed cap; and a 5-page photo tutorial on grafting the stitches together in pattern (including a summary at the end to help you graft other patterns).
