I've never done cables before - I've watched Amy's video and it seems basic enough. What I have in mind is this. I'm knitting a poncho for my niece. The pattern knits the front and back seperately, then seams together down the arms on each side. I'm not sure if it going to be quite big enough, especially post seaming, so I'm thinking of what I could do to add a bit more to the size. That's what got me thinking of maybe doing a long strip with a single cable and seaming it in down the arms.
Whadda ya think??? How many stitches wide would I do it and how would I know where to take stitches off for the cable?? I guess what I'm looking for is a basic basic cable pattern.
