Bough is a super quick, comforting knit that takes less than one 50g skein of 4 ply yarn. There a few stitches and techniques that may or may not be new to you, but whether your are a newer knitter or a seasoned pro, I have you covered! I have created some video tutorials for the Alternate Cable Cast On, 1/1 Twisted Stitches and the Simple Bobbles I use for this pattern. They are all linked in the pattern and I hope you find them helpful. Happy knitting! x
