          Your Needles Will Go Crazy for These Fun Cable Knit Projects

          Actions

          There’s nothing like the twisting, turning braids of cables to make you fall in love with knitting all over again! They add so much texture and interest to your design, and they’re a ton of fun to knit without being all that hard to learn. Pick a project below, then have a total blast knitting it up.

          1. Heads Up

          Big yarn and big needles mean this simple cabled headband knits up nice and quickly. Don’t give up if your cable doesn’t look like much at first: it takes a few rows for it to show its form! (Psst: cables also show up best with light-colored yarn, so keep that in mind when buying your supplies .)

          2. Top It Off

          With multiple pretty cables and a fun pom pom, this might just be our new favorite hat ! You also get to choose between following the chart or using written instructions, making this pattern a super versatile one to follow.

          3. Pillow Fight

          You’ll create two identical pieces of this intricate, Aran-style cable pattern and then learn to use i-cord edging to form them into a pillow. Be warned: you’re going to want to make one for every couch in the house!

          4. Hit or Mitts

          Keep your hands cozy and your fingers free with these texting-ready gloves. They feature gorgeous Celtic knot cables — learn to make their iconic closed loops using increases and decreases!

          5. Sweater Weather

          There’s no better way to cable than on a classic Aran pullover sweater. Once you’ve spent the time knitting all those details (we'll even show you how to customize the pattern to your own liking), you’re going to want to live in this cozy piece year-round.

          6. Classic Cardi

          It’s all in the details: The waist-shaping on this cardigan allows your Celtic cables to appear like they’re curving in and coming back out again. Talk about flattering!

          7. Oh Honey

          Get a classically cool knitted look with cabled scarf's fishermen wool and an incredible texture that comes courtesy of the gorgeous honeycomb stitch.

          8. Cozy Up

          When it’s time to go big or go home, this cabled throw blanket is for you! The bold, textured details knit up super fast with the help of bulky yarn.
