Soooo much easier than I ever expected! If you're looking for a great project for your first attempt at cables, I highly recommend Coronet from knitty.com. So cute! So easy! So gratifying! I had no idea how much fun it is to watch the cables weave together as you knit ... this could get addicting.
This project used about 3/4 of a skein of Berroco's Ultra Alpaca in pale pink. Warm, soft, and fuzzy. I'll be using it again!
