I’m now at the cabled section of the hat. It’s not my first time in “cable-land”, but this pattern still confused me a bit. I was going back and forth between the hat directions and the cable pattern at the beginning of the design – but just kept scratching my head, thinking, “Where am I? What am I DOING?” So, I ended up having to type out the directions for this section row by row.
I’m sure I made a mistake in the cabling when I didn’t have my row-by-row instruction, but I’m just gonna let it slide. That part will probably be under the brim anyway, so it may never show. Also, I haven’t been feeling well lately, and just don’t want to frog my knitting. You DO know what frogging is, right? If you don’t, I’ll translate. It’s just ripping out your knitting. It’s called frogging, because you “rip it, rip it, rip it”! Ha!
Here’s my video, showing how to work the cables on Row 3 of the cabled section of the hat. That row has a C3B and a C3F on it. If you’ve never done cables before, just follow along with my video. I’ve added some soothing music to help calm your nerves while learning.
Now that I’m comfortable working the cabled section, my knitting is going much quicker. My row-by-row printout is helping a LOT! I’m already halfway through the cabled section now. Woo Hoo! I might just finish this hat in record time.
