Learn to cable the Bavarian way


If you're a fan of cables, then this class is for you. In the Great Wall Hat Class you'll learn to knit Bavarian Cables. This design came to Danielle while she was traversing the Great Wall during her recent trip to China. The unique cable represents the twists and turns of The Great Wall of China. Danielle used a twisted cable stitch which really pops the cable off the fabric of the hat. She used a scrumptiously soft alpaca wool blend yarn, making it wonderful to knit and wear.
