Cables are easy to make. They are simply worked by transferring a number of stitches to a third needle and knitting them in a different sequence. The examples shown here are worked over 6 stitches. Cables can be made over any even number of stitches (for example, 4-stitch, 8-stitch or 10-stitch cables.) A cable row is normally worked on right side rows as indicated in the pattern. A cable needle is used to hold the stitches in place as the stitches are being transferred.
