Knit & Crochet Mock Cables

Mock Cables

Manipulating fibers to create bending shapes if one of the most fun things to do with knit and crochet stitches. This week on Ask Me Monday, I’ll show you how to do that with two stitches, one knit and one crochet, by creating mock cables.

Give the episode a watch, practice the swatches below, then give the Racer & Rever hat patterns, both with mock cables panels, a try. Both patterns come in the YarnYAY! September box. Enjoy!
