Plait Cloche

I love designing from scratch and have a Ravelry Store with some of my designs for sale. This is one of my favourites and is great for beginner knitters, a perfect introduction to cable. Cosy and warm, made from chunky wool and pulling right down over the ears. With a single cable plait on one side, it has a quirky extra to it. I hope you enjoy knitting and wearing it…
