Introducing Acquiesce

Allow me to introduce ‘Acquiesce’; she may look complex but I will let you into a little secret. It is a great project for cable beginners!  ‘Acquiesce’ is available to download from my Ravelry Store.

The all over cable fabric is worked in the round using only two basic cable stitches.

The pattern is charted and includes, as always in my patterns, links to handy tutorial videos to get you knitting with confidence.

James C Brett Pure Merino Wool DK has great stitch definition and comes in a range of beautiful shades. Other yarns that I would recommend are Rowan Pure Silk Merino or if you feel like splashing out why not invest in some Fyberspates Scrumptious DK.

A word of warning though, avoid variegated shades, your beautiful cables will be difficult to see”.

To knit this hat you will need the following skills;

  • knit
  • purl
  • k2tog
  • C6F
  • C6B
  • working from a chart
  • knitting in the round

As always links are included to video tutorials that will get you knitting with confidence.
