Cables are really nice detailed add to a variety of garments. I'm Vickie Howell from DIY’s Knitty Gritty, and I'm going to show you how a cable is done. Now they might look complicated, but really just a series of twisted stitches. Let's take a look at one. This is a traditional cable pattern that’s been work in for this sweater. There are two separate kinds of cables. There's this front cross, also known as the left cross. And the back cross, also known as the right cross. I'm going to show you how to do both methods. The first one we're going to do is the front cross. Now this particular cable is going to take four stitches, but really you can cable with as many stitches as you want. As long as it’s an even number. But first, grab a cable needle. So you're going to take your cable needle and pull off the first two stitches of the cable and let those stitches hang in front while you knit the next two stitches. Then you pick up your cable needle and you knit those two stitches that were hanging out for a while right off that cable needle. Now you can see your front crossing cable. Alright, let's try the back one now. For the back one, you're doing exactly the same thing, only as the name suggest, the cable will cross towards the back. So you take the two stitches again on the cable needle, but this time, instead of bringing them to the front like we did before, we're going to bring them into the back and let them hang out there. Then, we're going to knit the next two stitches, pick up our cable needle and knit two more. Now don’t worry if they feel like their being stretch a little, it’s going to a little tight. Completely normal. Alright. Now you can see, cable complete. Super easy, super fun, but it looks really complicated. So your friends will be super impress.
