If you’ve ever worn a cabled sweater and wondered at the twisting pattern, you might like to see how they’re made. Better yet, try it yourself!
This movie is a tutorial for both the cabled handwarmers and cabled mitten projects. It’s also got a very favourite song in it, which we realised is also in a movie we love, Beginners. Fitting, then, as I adore cable-knitting. It is one of those pleasingly simple techniques, like plaiting hair or weaving homespun yarn, which gives a surprisingly satisfying result that looks more complex than the process truly is. It captures the eye like a good melody captures the ear. I hope you enjoy the little movie.
