Hi! It’s been AGES since I knit and hung out here but I have taken it up again this winter. And, of course, I couldn’t just pick an easy pattern to knit…nope! I’m trying this:
with some handspun alpaca from a local farm. I have done cables before but this is ALL cables and I knit pretty tight so it’s been a challenge. I wanted to learn to do this without a cable needle so I have read all the tutorials and watched all the videos but they all are for patterns with space between the cables and there are none in my pattern. Can I knit this without a cable needle or should I just trudge on with one?
ETA: The yarn is sort of a worsted weight and I’m using #8 needles…would this be easier if I went up a needle size or two? And I only have 200 yards…this might turn into a cowl. Maybe this isn’t the right pattern for this yarn?
Thanks for any help you can give. I love this pattern but, at this rate, I won’t be wearing it any time soon!
