- Making cables without a cable needle
- Knitting socks that fit

See the download button in the right column.


footnote: Experimenting with cables and this wonderful yarn, the cabling looked just like water rushing through gullies in the streams around where I grew up in the Texas hill country. The colorway that I used only reinforced the visual by being the color of the water in the washed gully.
