Fabales grew from my desire to knit a Hat that would showcase a special skein of yarn but also have just enough detail to catch the eye. The motifs grow organically from a twisted rib into a background of reverse stocking stitch.

This is a quick knit, perfect for a long train journey or languid summer nights. Choose that special skein with care.

Skills required: Knit & purl sts, specialist cast-on, increases & decreases, knitting in the round, lace

Pattern contents: Written & charted instructions; illustrated tutorials for Alternate Cable & Cable cast-ons
