As you can see this design is featuring a lot of cables. But when I read the description of this cable in the special abbreviations for the frist time I thought by myself “Huugh?” You know I’m not a native speaker, but this time I was lucky to have also the german instructions. But also then I don’t was sure how to do this cable. During knitting this sweater – after it was long on my to-do-list – I took some picture doing the cable.
Now Ted asked me how to knit this cable. So I will show the steps one after another. I hope it will help you to knit this really stunning design.
In the booklet you need 1 yarn holder, 1 cable needle and 1 safety-pin. I used two yarn holders instead of the cable needle!
6 rows of the pattern are knitted, RS facing now the row with the Knot 15 will be knitted.
(K5, turn, P5 turn) 4 times, break yarn and leave these 5 std on a holder.
Slip next 5 std onto cable needle (here second yarn holder) and leave them on the back of the work.
Rejoin yarn and work across next 5 st as folls: (K5, turn, P5, turn) 4 times, break yarn and leave these 5 sts on a safety-pin.
Ensuring strips are not twisted, slip sts back onto left needle as rolls: slip 5 sts on holder back onto left needle,
then slip 5 std from cable needle (here second yarn holder) onto left needle, keeping them behind sts from holder.
Now wrap sts on safety-pin around sts from holder as folls:
pass safety-pin from top to bottom behind sts from holder keeping them in front of sts from cable needle,
then slip these 5 sts onto left needle.
Rejoin yarn and work across all 15 sts as folls: K5, P5, K5.
