Cables are a very bewitching thing to me, as well as to others who see me make them. How could just switching the order in which you knit stitches in a row create such intricate and lovely “braids”? I try to explain over and over again to non-knitting friends just how exactly I make one and “how easy” it is, yet still they cannot understand the process. And as a knitter, I can’t understand that they can’t understand.

This is one of my favorite chunky knits (I’ve made 3 of these blankets in the past), and it’s a pattern that will always bewitch me.
