What you need to know

Create the look of cables with Jo Allport’s clever stitch effect

Some knitters find that traditional cables are a bit fiddly or they play havoc with their tension, but Jo Allport has the answer. Follow her step-by-step photo guide to achieve a brilliant twist effect and all you need to do is slip a few stitches! This little beanie hat is an ideal project for practising this technique as you don't need to worry about shaping until the pattern is complete. Go on, give it a try!
