Design by Miroslava Mihalkova from Exquisite Crochet UK.
Winding Cables Hat is a great project for those who would like to dip their toes in the world of Tunisian crochet cables. The repetitive pattern allows for sufficient practise of the technique creating a beautiful texture reminiscent of narrow countryside pathways.
The Aran weight yarn recommended for this project offers sufficient warmth for this item to be worn throughout autumn and winter, while having great stitch definition and drape.
