Re: Showing Off My Sideways Cable, and Question

Those are SO cute!!! Love the color; are you going to do a drawstring through the cable, or just leave it plain?

Re: Showing Off My Sideways Cable, and Question

Very nice. That looks like a lot of work to pick up all those stitches. Action shots please!

They look great

I really want to see them on. I haven't done cables ever. I haven't found a reason to do them yet...or maybe I'm just putting them off...LOL

Those came out great! I do have to say, though, that the suggestion of mini cables on the cuffs was a good one! Maybe the next time, huh?

Yes, I'm making one now with a different cable at the top, and I will do smaller cables at the bottom. I'll post pics later tonight!

There are a ton of sites out there showing it, but basically you knit a column of 2 or 4 or 6 (etc) stitches, and every couple of rows you take the first 2 or 3 stitches, put them on another needle, knit the last 2 or 3 stitches, then put the first three back on and knit them. It sounds impossible, but it is super easy and you can do some neat things with it! This braided look came from alternating which stiches I moved, and which direction I moved them.
