consider: braids + cables + bulky

i've been really inspired to incorporate braids (ie braided cables) into my very bulky winter knit accessories, like this of a sample braided turban headband i've knit of some wonderfully very chunky merino wool, from abuelita yarns. just whats inspiring my knits right now.
