How to Knit Basic Cables
Cable stitches are perhaps the most impressive and distinctive patterns in a knitter's arsenal.
The amazing texture and intricate detail of cables never fail to earn the admiration of knitters and non-knitters alike.
While cabled patterns often look complicated, the truth is that they all stem from a very straightforward technique.
The stitch count and direction of the cable may differ, but the basic structure of each cable is always the same.
To work a cable, you can use a cable needle to change the order in which certain stitches are worked, creating the unmistakable "crossed over" look in your fabric.
By combining individual cable stitches in a larger panel, beautiful effects can be achieved!
