I put together a short video showing I make make the cable 4 back (C4B) and cable 4 front (C4F). You’ll notice pretty quickly that I use the Continental knitting style. I’m a self-taught knitter and that’s what felt most comfortable to me!
I’m also using a pair of short circular knitting needles in the video rather than double pointed needles. These circular needles are 8 inch long and work perfectly for the bottom of the hats. I switch to double pointed needles during the decreases, and solely use dpns for the Owl Gloves. I also really like these curved cable needles.
I’ve got a few more owl knitting patterns up my sleeve and I’m testing out some crochet owls as well!
