Current Projects and Crochet Cables

I've been obsessed with crochet cables lately! I've been able to test some fun patterns and been inspired to maybe try some of my own cable ideas eventually but I have no idea when! So many ideas and so very little time. Here are a few great cable projects I've done in the past few weeks. 

My friend Rachel over at Silly Stitches wrote this really awesome pattern for a cabled cowl 
called the Myrna Cowl

The pattern even includes directions for a cozy, furry lining. This is super warm and fun to make! I made this with Lion Brand Tweed stripes and just looove the way the colors worked up.  

If you love this as much as I did! Then your in luck because she is having a 20% off sale in her 
Etsy Shop Items and Patterns this weekend! Just use the code: 20percentssale

You can see her other two amazing cable patterns I've made here

With all the fun inspiration of cables I'd had, I decided to try my hand at this 
"It's a Hoot Beanie" again. 
I'd made this one around Christmas 2012. It came out smaller than anticipated so it was perfect for Calleigh. I just added a fuzzy trim and big ol' pom pom for fun.  

I've been loving Lion Brand Heartland so I thought I'd try to make a cabled Owl slouch, but I ran out of yarn! I'll have to grab another skien to add a brim to make it slouch more. I also would recommend  doing the owl cable hat in light or brighter colors. I was excited for this charcoal color but you can't really tell the owls are there very well. They just don't pop. I like the way this one turned out but I still have some finishing details I'd like to add. 

Have you tried crochet cables? What did you make?

I LOVE cables!! I'm working on a cabled scarf design that is thick and full of dimension.

I love cables! I was afraid of them until I made the cable st. hat by Silly Stitches. A light went on, with how she explained them. And it was easy. I need to make some owls, love them.
