A sweet little cable pattern which creates circles instead of knots. This is a 5 stitch pattern. 1. Slip 1 2. Put 3 sts on a separate needle 3-4. Put the next st in front of the separate needle 5. Put the slipped stitch on the left needle 6. Knit the 4 stitches on the separate needle 7. Knit the st on the left needle. Follow the photos then knit 6-8 rows/rounds then start the cabling again.

I designed a pair of shorts for children's knitwear magazine Petite Purls called Ahoy Shorts (not available anymore since the magazine shut down. But you can find the pattern via......

kakaduI love this one. The cockatoo is one of my favorites in this project and the competition is hard. Simple and easy, but yet so fancy a hairstyle. Check out the project page with a list of all handpuppets and techniques. The a-puppet-a-week-project is currently on pause. But I will continue sometime in the future, not so soon, though. I'm really pleased I made it this far with this project and made it through the first half....
