Welcome to Day 8 of the 21 Days of Cable Knit Stitches Series!

Today is going to be a productive day! We’ll be learning 3 new stitches and it’s a little lacy. This stitch reminds me of an owl.


Materials:

Size US 11 {8mm} Knitting Needles
Approximately 75 Yards {68m} of a Super Bulky Yarn
{I used Softee Chunky Bernat Yarnspirations}
Cable Needle


Notes:

The CO edge is the width.
You can use any category of yarn you’d like, just keep in mind that the thinner the yarn, the narrower your headband.
