How Easy is a mock cable?

Traditional cables cross stitches and often use a tool called a cable needle. But this beanie is not your regular cable; in fact, it's not a knit cable at all! It just appears to look like one. Instead of crossing knit stitches, we are dropping a stitch over other knit stitches.

This means a great textured look of traditional knit cables but without all the work. This beanie works up quickly without the stress of dropping stitches. So if you are ready to get adventurous but still want to practice knitting skills before jumping to cable work, this is the place to start.

And even if you are an experienced knitter, this beanie hat pattern is a relaxing and fun repeat. The knit fabric has a great stretch that sizes perfect for a toddler to a child.
