Help with cabling!

Oh, I posted it under easy cables but just wanted to you know, new question over there!

When you post under someone else thread the question can get lost or not answered so if you have a different question ask here. People don’t always go back to the same post if they’ve seen it. :slight_smile:

Thanks Jan! That ocurred to me after I posted!

Is 6 stitches the entire width of the cable?

If so, you would slip 3 stitches to the cable needle, hold in back, knit the next three stitches on the left needle, then knit the 3 stitches off the cable needle. Then continue with the pattern.

Thanks LIsa! Yeah, ok I figured it, it is 6 stitches and it’s working. I guess the cables will all go one way, as I’ve read of the other kind (well I know there’s a lot of different cables) the other kind would be hold in front, alternating with hold in back. I’m going to have to experiment a lot to see which I like best! It’s easy, the only hard part is to keep the stitches loose enough, they tend to get really tight if you’re not careful.
