I made these! And I think they're awesome! They look so nice and twisty!
This is the first time I've made cables before, and I thought it would be really hard, but I was very wrong.
I think it has a lot to do with the pattern I picked. I'm making Kalurah's Through The Woods Hood and it has extremely clear instructions. Also, I'm using Cascade Yarns Eco in Antique, and it's really nice to knit with - a bit scratchy, but after a wash I'm sure it will be fine to wear.
