The design I’m sharing with you was created several years ago as protection from winter’s chill but can, also, be used as a different kind of protection when lined with cotton or a filter

Beautifully knit cables have drawn crafters to learn how to knit for years. Today let’s learn how to knit cables. At its very basic structure, cables are formed from knitting stitches out of order over several rows. In this tutorial, we will show you how to knit a standard cable stitch, also called a rope cable. We write this in our pattern with a C for cable, the number of stitches that will be a part of the cable (in this tutorial, we are knitting 4), and F or B for where we will hold the stitches; altogether it will look like C4F or C4B, which you would find in the Special Stitches section of Mary Maxim Patterns. If you are working a pattern, make sure to read all stitch instructions thoroughly because they can change slightly depending on the pattern.
There is a new Mary Maxim Yarn just in time for fall that I am very excited to share with you today. Mary Maxim Starlette Chunky is a super bulky size 6 yarn that will be your next go-to yarn for quick knit, and crochet projects, and a great yarn for big projects are that designed to make big impacts with stitches that really stand out. If you are a fiber artist who loves a good super bulky yarn, Starlette Chunky is the Mary Maxim yarn for you.
