It started, as so many impulses seem to begin of late, with a picture on pinterest. A woolly cuff, which caught my eye. But horror of horrors, there was no real link on the original pin.
Don't you hate it when that happens? I was determined to track the image down. For hours I trawled Flickr with every keyword combination of woolly bracelet cuff cable knit I could think of, but no joy. TinEye brought up no matches. I tried Ravelry and Etsy. Nothing. But I couldn't get it out of my head. I tried knitting a giant cable, but it didn't look right. And then, from deep within the recesses of my subconscious bubbled up the idea of a turks head knot.
And a great deal of knitted icord later, my own version appeared.
Woolly bracelet bliss.
Though I am still determined to track down the creator of the original, so if anyone knows, please do enlighten me.
