Welcome to another episode of our online knitting class :)

In this video, you will discover how to knit cables without using a cable needle (auxiliary needle).

This technique requires a little practice at first but once mastered, you'll love knitting the cables. It's so much easier to knit the rows without having to stop constantly to use a third needle each time you have to cross the stitches.

 

Welcome to another episode of our online knitting class :)

In this video, you will discover how to knit cables without using a cable needle (auxiliary needle).

This technique requires a little practice at first but once mastered, you'll love knitting the cables. It's so much easier to knit the rows without having to stop constantly to use a third needle each time you have to cross the stitches.

To practice this new technique, you will find several patterns of knitting right here in our online wool shop, including our sock pattern with three cables that you can download for free here: Three Cable Socks.

Do not forget to position your yarn in front (when you are asked to hold the cable needle behind the book) or behind (when you are asked to hold the cable needle in front of the work). Then it's a simple matter of practice !!

Happy cable knitting !!
