Cable stitch

Surprisingly easy to knit - if you can knit and purl, you can knit cables!

Facts & handy tips

In order to knit cables, you will need one spare needle to temporarily transfer stitches too. Short, double pointed needles are ideal so make sure you have the goods ready. For the best results, try to keep your cable needle close to your project as to not affect tension.
