It all started when I wanted to make a cute cable bonnet for my baby girl. I finally finished after much trial and error (which is inevitable when I create a pattern) and it was so cute that I had to make it available in ALL sizes! So here you go! It is the EASIEST cable you could ever make! So if you are a beginner, this is the pattern for YOU! And it's knitted flat, so you can use straight or circular needles. 

This pattern is made the exact same way for every size, except you use different size needles and yarn.
