I have started my first knitted hood. It is an add - on for any coat without a hood. The base is all cables.
I have never tried a pattern quite this complicated. The biggest part is covered with cables. A twist in the in the knitted columns every few rows.
I still have several, SEVERAL more cables to complete before I can move on to the side panels. More pics as I get further along.
This is a practice project. The kit came with natural, undyed Peruvian wool. Apparently these sheep were a black brown. It will go really well with a cape I have.
I have ordered some cashmere yarn to make one for Mom. I wanted to get my hand back in before I tried a gift. You know, work out all the bugs before I move on.
It is coming along well. . . Now. I have had to take it all out a few times and start over. Even just a few stitches had to come out to fix the order.
I think I have this part figured out. I should be able to knock this out pretty well. I am a morning knitter. My hands tire about one in the afternoon.
I have another cable in me today. Talk to you later.
