Cables have a great look and feel to them, but it can be somewhat tiresome to pick up (and find) the cable needle for each twist, and it's easy to loose track of exactly how many rows you've worked since the last twist. With the Mock Cable pattern on this sweater, it's easy to create the effect of cables, without all the fuss!
