I soon gave up on the magazine in favour of the far more user friendly You Tube video. Mikeyssmail videos, to be exact. That's not to say I don't use the odd written pattern, and when a Facebook friend sent me a huge pile of The Art of Crochet magazines I was, to say the least, very thankful!
One of the first projects I've tried from the pile is this cable stitch headband.

Let me tell you, it took me a long while to get the hang of the cable stitching, but after a few days and plenty of unpicking, the odd foot stamp, it finally clicked, and I ended up with a very satisfactory head band.
