This is fantastic - thank you! I haven`t attempted learning to cable yet, but you have totally taken away all my fear. :)
Yay! So glad :)
Thank you! And...yay! Good for you...go for it!
Do you do that the whole way till the end Or do you Do that only at certain points?
It depends on what your pattern instructs you to do...for example you can repeat the cable twist every couple of rows or there can be several twists that are repeated across a row. Usually there is a combination of both.
I've tried cables and I have found them to be extremely easy to understand but difficult to execute. The second half of the cables (knit the 3 off the needle) to be extremely tight and had visible threads after. It didn't look neat and tight like yours, but loose, even though I had to fight to get the cables worked. Any suggestions?
I think it could be the tension...when switching back and forth from needle to needle, it can be cumbersome...sometimes it is a lot to hold all at once! I would keep practicing...over time my cables looked neater that when I first began. Those cable needles that have a little curve in them seem to be very helpful when starting out too. Hope that helps!
thanks a lot!! :D
thanks a lot!!! :D
You're welcome, glad you like the tutorial!
You know? After looking at the tutorial, I feel like I could actually do this! Thanks! I've always wanted to try cabling! :)
can you tell us what stitches you used before and after the cable.? looks like it would make a cute scarf.
