Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knitting back and forth on circular needles
  • Cabling
  • Chart reading (cable pattern does not have written instructions)
  • Seaming pieces together

Pattern Description:

Perhaps not strong enough for a house, but this makes a fine container. The Three Little Pigs would be proud to call this their toy box. It also looks beautiful stuffed with yarn and tucked into your book shelf. Cable patterning knit in a rustic looking grey-brown yarn echoes the texture and depth of twigs. Feel free to knit as your mood takes you and wander where the cables lead you rather than strictly follow the chart. After knitting, the piece is carefully wrapped around a supporting cube constructed from wooden skewers.
