Was knitting along and finished one of the squares for my afghan, and figured I didn’t want to start another one. So I decided to try a Staghorn cable. One small problem, no cable needle. Anyway, figured I didn’t want to wait until I got home to practice, so picked up a ball point pen with a plastic shaft and used IT for the cable needle, and it worked and am now done with the staghorn…
in case anybody is wondering Staghorn cable is knitted on a background of Reverse St st, and goes like this:
- K4, C4B, C4F, K4
- K2, C4B, K4, C4F, K2
- C4B, K8, C4F
Repeat from *
No pic that I can post, but you can view pretty much what staghorn looks like here: http://threads.kgraff.net/hat2_2004.shtml#staghorn
you’ll have to scroll down a little to see it, it’s attached to a couple of needles.
