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. GAUGE 32 sts and 32" = 4" PREFERRED BRAND/YARN KnitPicks Palette

Recommended with this pattern

  • 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

I love everything about knitting...knitting itself, designing and now, creating yarn for you to use when working my patterns. Let me customize the blend and colorways you want: Some people see a gorgeous sunset and photograph it. Others paint it. I knit it. Fiber and fabric are my media. Knitting the sunset makes it mine.
