Question about cables


I’m a beginner and learning to knit cables. My question is, are cables ever done in variegated yarns or are they done mostly with solid yarns to better show the effect? TIA


You can knit them in whatever yarn you like. They will be easier to see in a solid colored yarn, but that isn’t required.



Thanks Knitcindy!


Maybe this will help. Hope the picture loads.


Wow! Beautiful! You knit beautifully. Thanks for posting!!


Thank you! Love this yarn from Hobby Lobby!

Thank you!



Lovely yarn and such neat knitting :slight_smile:


Just wondering, what is the name of the yarnnu used for these mitts?? Absolutely gorgeous!!!



Thanks! I think it was Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarn in Cranapple Stripes.


I should have looked at the picture before replying! I believe that is Songbird Stripe.
