Meet Antalya, one of two designs I created for Twist Collective’s Winter 2010 issue.
Cables are my first love: they’re a great texture, a natural stitch configuration to turn to for winter projects, and oh so flexible, their willingness to twist and bend and separate to fit the projects. I experimented with numerous cable combinations but ultimately the simplest ones worked best. Antalya is knit sideways, a cabled hat formed with short rows and closed with Kitchener stitch. It’s not complicated at all, surprisingly. It’s an engaging knit, so if you’re bored with Stockinette stitch, try this.
