  1. I would really like to do a beanie using this (cable x cross over) can I go about incorporating this into a beanie pattern?

  2. It takes 8 stitches to do the cable X crossover. You would find a pattern that you like and evenly add the cable where you want it to be on the cap. You will still need to do your increase rounds so you would need to offset the cable from the increases.

  3. Absolutely fantastic tutorial! I followed along on your youtube video and made my first cable in a matter of minutes. Thank you!!!

  4. I just got started on this stitch, being a visual learner, where can I find the videos since they are no longer available on you tube?

  5. sunrise811,
    I just checked and the video is still there. Try clicking on the watch in high quality. That always seems to help when other people have experienced the same problem.

  6. I could not find the high quality button, so I chose to download. I have the video with no audio, MP11 had trouble reading mp4. Looking for sugguestions, or how else can I get (purchase) these videos, have daughters that are also starting to show interest in learning, would love to have around.

  7. Anonymous,
    Where did you download the video from?

  8. I downloaded it from Utube.

  9. Anonymous,
    You did a free download?

  10. No, I paid the .99 cents as it asked.
    Thanks for hellping me figure this out.

    It should play in Windows Media Player.

  12. It does play in windows media play but no audio.

  13. Anonymous,
    That would lead me to believe that you will need to work on some sound settings in your computer.

  14. AH! Problem solved, it is actually Windows Vista! I checked to see if it was just that one video to find out it was all utube videos, downloaded flash player and all is good! Thanks for your thoughts and help - finally off to crochet!!!
