My latest gift is Cable Swirl Tam and Mittens in the recent edition of Creative Knits. I love the look of the pattern, but I found the written pattern to be a bit difficult to understand. It didn’t make sense in a few spots and didn’t explain that it’s pretty hard to keep the marker for the start of the round when the swirls have to cross over that spot. All in all I figured it out though and I think the recipient will really like it.
