After a recent road trip along the Payette River in Idaho, I was inspired to create this design. The twisted cables are reminiscent of the twists and turns of this beautiful river. This is a great project if you are new to cable knitting. It is a quick, chunky knit with a cozy fit available in every size from newborn to adult. I hope you enjoy making it!
