Neater decreases in knit edges
provisional cast on. Knitting tip i have been trying to find for ages makes a cable pattern easier to start without the weird squishy appearance at the beginning and allows you to unravel the yarn for a seamless sew up later on Набор петель косичкой
I can't read Russian but it's actually okay because knitting charts are universal and I can read those!
Some super Xmas patterns here.
