The Cabled Fur Trim Hood is perfect for those late fall days when you are not quite ready to put on your winter coat. Make it in your favorite neutrals or go bold with bright colors for the teens. You could use your favorite team colors for those chilly sporting events too. Both teens and ladies alike will love wearing this trendy accessory. Pair it up with the Retro Fur Collar to complete the look.
The Cabled Fur Trimmed Hood is my current submission to Cre8tion Crochet.

Working with fur yarn takes patience, but it is also very forgiving. It can hide small imperfections. Push the fur to the side or the back to locate the stitches. Make sure to count your stitches as you work.
If you are new to cables I highly recommend watching this video from Tamara Kelly of Moogly.
