Basic Cable Techniques with Sarah Peasley
Do you love those beautiful textures, but think cables are too difficult? Think again! Conquering cable knitting is simply a matter of knitting your stitches in the proper order.
Right leaning or left leaning, back and forth or in the round, with or without a cable needle, Sarah will help you get it all sorted out. And while we're at it, let's demystify those wacky chart symbols, and whip a few mis-crossed cables into shape.
50 grams smooth, light-colored, #4 (worsted) weight yarn; 4.5mm/US 7 dpns AND 16" circular needle (measured from tip to tip), or size to match yarn; cable needle; 4 stitch markers; safety pins; scissors
With MC and circular needle, cast on 72 stitches. Join without twisting to work in the round. Round 1 *Knit 4, purl 2; repeat from * to end of round. Repeat Round 1 five more times. Do not bind off. Do not cut yarn.
