How to Crochet a Cross Cable Pattern Part 1/4
To do a cable kind of crochet is actually not too difficult at all. It’s just not something that I really but I know how to do it. But it actually cabling—how would you describe—do you see my sweater here you see how the—hopefully that I’m zoomed and you see how it’s kind of like patterned out in just a section? That’s what cabling is in crochet. So it’s kind of like a section of your sweater or whatever and probably you can see that, it’s like sticking out a little bit. So that’s what the whole point is.
So you’ve got crochet and you must keep it in groups of 24 so I don’t care how did you make it, make sure it’s a multiple of 24 and makes a huge difference because then your cabling will be centered into your project. So 24 is your magic number so if it’s not wide enough then you get to the 4 then go to 48 and go on and so and so 24 is your magic number. So we’re going to in your 24 and when I get to the end so we’re going to back 24, these are the things that don’t mean anything they just mean for me to hold myself in order to show you what goes where. So we get to go at 24 and then we’re going to chain up our actual three loops. So that chain then counts the first double-crochet if you remember it. And so basically, you’re going to double crochet into the first one here and it’s used to represented by plus symbol. So that double-crochet and double-crochet into the next so you have two double-crochets in a row. And the reason why I’m showing on the board and not necessarily on the project is that in the next section, we’re going to start crisscrossing underneath and over top of each other and it kind of gets difficult.
The next one over, what we’re going to be doing is we’re going to be doing one of those post things that I just demonstrated. And what we’re going to do is that double-crochet from the front actually it’s going to be double crochet and it's’ represented by this. So instead of going into the stitch we’re going to grab the post for double crocheting and then the next stitch will be a double crochet. And now here’s where it gets really interesting is that when you start crisscrossing with triple-crochet. So from this point, what we’re going to do is that we’re going to jump over one, two, three and go into the forth. So this one here, hopefully you could see that, well, the attached through triple-crochet to the actual stitch right here. So it represented by this line, this line. And now the next one, you’ll notice that there are six empty spots already so there’s going to be three triple-crochets going in one direction and three going in the other. So then this one here goes the triple-crochet to this one here and the next one goes the triple-crochet to that one.
So now, you’ve got to think about this a little bit is that we’ve just now skips three spots but the top spot is not over this section so we have to go backward. So what we need to do is that we need to triple-crochet back in the other direction and so we’re going to triple-crochet it back to the very first one. And that’s just kind of really hard to tell you to show you on the actual sample piece. So I’m just going to put the lines down there. So it’s a triple-crochet and what you’re going to do is if you’re looking at your project from the top section when you go to do this one you’re going to be—when you comeback to do this piece here. So this piece, we’re coming from the back and what you’re going to do is you’re going to twist you project so that your needle is still coming in through the front. I’ll show you how to do that. And so basically, just got a twist and you got shift these ones—so you got your six so you have to shift these out of your way. So you’ll just be pulling those forward as you then going behind and then grab the stitch that’s underneath of it. So that’s basically—that’s underneath that. So you’re going to pull this part down and then stick your needle in and grab by.
So the very next one, we’re going to do the same, the same principle where it’s just going to keep our material flexed and still coming in so that we’re coming up like that and then for the final, coming in again underneath. So then, what you need to do is just a regular double-crochet right here and here in order to keep the cabling looking neat is that you’re going to do your front post again. So you’re just going to do your front post coming down and around grabbing it by the post for double-crochet and then you’re going to continue along doing your project. And basically, from this point, if you were doing another cabling you would start it with your next cable which should be the orange-red here at this point. So that is really no extended gaps in between the cables. And that is how you do cabling and hopefully I’ve explained that well enough so it’s just a matter of material manipulation. Once you get the hang of it, it is easy but—groups to 24 it’s really not that hard, it’s just—I did jump to do it on pattern so it’s great for the next scarves or anything like that but I just never used it in practical sense. So that’s cross cabling.
