Cables are simple but look fancy. The cable in Irish Girlie Knits Comfort Food Pattern (on sale through November) is super simple and perfect for a beginner. Here are steps broken down:
At this point I’ve come to the place where I C5F – which translates to “Cable 5 Front.” That just means that the next 5 stitches will be a cable and the twist will go in the front.
Step 1: Slip 2 stitches from the left-hand needle to a cable needle. Hold the stitches to the front of your knitting.
Step 2: Knit the next 3 stitches on the left-hand needle.
Step 3: Knit the 2 stitches on the cable needle.
And you’re done!
Do a little happy dance!
Please excuse my hands – I obviously need a manicure.
