Use the code quickknit for 35% the pattern, or if you purchase both Take a Bough and Swipe Right, you’ll get 50% off them both (no code needed). Both promos through Dec. 16th (all day).

A quick knit for gifting that’s a cheating cheater who cheats--because it only looks like you had to use a cable needle!

Instead of traditional 1/1 cables, these are worked as “twists” where you simply work the second stitch on the needle, then the first—super easy, no cable needle necessary, and I’ve linked a video tutorial to help you out.

The final twist pattern results in a design reminiscent of tree boughs—we’ll be the only ones who know it didn’t take cabling to do it:)
