I have a pattern where the instruction is to cable the first five stitches in the row, a C10F. I can do normal cables, that are several stitches into the pattern, but I simply can’t get this one to work!
The yarn is at the edge of the 1st st, so when I come to knit the 6th stitch (having slipped the first 5 onto my cable needle) the yarn wraps around the side of the work. Once the cabling is done, it looks as though the cable is at a right angle to the rest of the knitting, and you can still see the piece of yarn that is trapped going from the 1st stitch to the 6th.
How do I stop the yarn wrapping round? Are there any videos I can watch? I can only find ones for cables in the centre of the knitting. Should I add a stitch to the edge, and then knit together two - and if so, where and when do I knit together?
Thanks so much!
