Look! Look! Look!

8-stitch Cable

It’s an 8-Stitch cable! My first attempt at cables, and it’s soooo easy! How did I not know how easy it would be? It’s a ten row repeat, and the cables cross on the 4th row (4th… 14th… 24th…). So after the first cross, all you have to do is know what row you’re on (so you know when to cross). The rest is all in the knitting. It tells you what to do. You knit the knits and purl the purls, and WHY HAVEN’T I TRIED THIS SOONER?!?!

I want to cable EVERYTHING now!

(And yes, I know there are cables that require more attention, but I purposely picked a simple-looking one for my first attempt. And it came out FABULOUS!)
