Single cable stitch

How do I go about making a single cable stitch in a scarf I am making?:knitting:

Does your pattern tell you anywhere what they want you to do for the “single cable stitch”? You can’t make a cable out of one stitch. :?? Do you have a link to the pattern on-line or can you give us a few rows and the number you cast on?

You mean a cable with just one stitch twisted, or just one cable down the middle or edge?

You need 2 sts or more to make a cable. You can do a Right Twist or Left Twist.

RT - from behind your work knit the 2nd st first, leave on the needle, then knit the 1st st and let them both drop off the L needle.

LT - from in front of your work, knit the 2nd st, leave on the needle, then knit the 1st st and let them both drop off the L needle.

for a scarf you might want to do a stitch that looks good from both sides…

maybe you can explain a little further what your intention is. Then we might have more proposals.

For the cabling one over one ( a cable where every “band” of the cable is 1 stitch wide and the cable all together is 2 stitches wide): do it like Suzeeq said. Just learn it and do not use a cable needle for the small ones. Too much efford for the same result.
