How To Do A Cable CO

To do a cable cast on, you dip your needle between your first two stitches on the round

that you are about to start and pull a loop of your working yarn through the two stitches.

Then you put the loop of working yarn, that you have onto your needle, onto the start

needle at the beginning of the round. Then, reach between the stitch, that you have just

cast on and the original stitch to your working yarn and pull another loop through. Put it

on the start needle next to the first one that you made.


YO= yarn over K2tog= knit 2 together

K= knit Rep= repeat

P= purl K3tog= knit 3 together
