Bobble stitch and cables! What more could you ask for a fun friday night in with knitting and the streaming service of your choice. I like the shorter length of this classic cabled garment and the feature of the cable panel against the stocking stitch.
This is originally knitted in the King Cole Merino Blend DK, a smooshy and enjoyable pure wool in lots of gorgeous solid shades. If you want a non-wool alternative for this pattern I would recommend Sirdar No 1 DK, a mixture of acrylic and nylon that has a very low pile so will make those cable stitches really pop.
King Cole recommends 3.25mm and 4mm straight needles and stitch holders.
