Pair a trio of saturated colors together for this cabled, striped and textured hat & mitten set that’s exciting to knit and wear. Let each color trade places with the next as I did to use your yarn as equally as possible, or make a matching set with a consistent cable color throughout.

Equal Measure features a neat technique to work intarsia and avoid seaming at the same time. While you’ll work back and forth in rows, the last stitch of each row is joined to the first stitch of the row to join your work seamlessly as you go. No stranding required either! A step-by-step photo tutorial of the technique accompanies written instructions.
