My design ideas and advice: A simple cable looks so effective while at the same time being so exciting to knit! In this design I used two of my favourite cable patterns – one I call the honeycomb, I’m not sure if this is it’s ‘official’ name but it makes me think of bees and honey every time I see it, and the other the cable plait. This pattern evokes feelings of childhood and playing hairdressers and plaiting my sisters hair…..which then naturally progressed to finding scissors and properly playing hairdressers!!
