Lion Brand Cable Hat

Last night I finally settled on a project to learn cables. It is the Lion Brand Pattern Number: 60619A and one of the first things I realized is that I needed to put the instructions into Word and reformat it so that I can see it through my new bifocals without getting a headache from eye strain. I hadn’t yet done a “purl through back loop” (p tbl or P1b) so I looked for instructions online …it turns out that my guess at how to do it worked just fine. I found a great page that not only explains the abbreviations and terms, but shows little mini-tutorial videos. Check out the KnittingHelp.com site for more.

I grew up in New England, moved to the Carolinas in '98 to start working at what was then a large regional bank and is now a really big nationwide bank. I work doing intranet content management and intranet site management. After work, I practice Aikido, knit, ride my motorcycle, read, watch movies & eat. I've been studying Aikido since 2014, and I ride an old Honda Shadow. Someday I want to go skydiving, and I am pretty sure that I want to hike the Appalachian Trail someday.
