The Crazy 8 Cable Hat, Mitts, and Cowl Set works well in a wool blend. The cables are worked with 5 stitches held to back, and 3 knit from the left. The set is worked with rhythmic rib patterns, can be knit in a weekend or two, and makes a perfect gift or accessory. This may be considered an intermediate level pattern because knowledge of cable and stitch construction is helpful.
