I love cabling.
It’s a pretty simple process and once you get the hang of it, you can create so many interesting shapes and designs. Here’s a sample of some different cable knits:

If you’re new to knitting, cables might intimidate you, but I created a little tutorial and pattern to help you get used to knitting and cabling and get in plenty of practice!
Hopefully you have your yarn all ready to go. You’ll also need double pointed needles. If you have two sets of circular needles, that will also work. Unfortunately, straight needles will not work when you cable because you need to slide the yarn back and forth.
Once you have your needles and yarn, check out the video tutorial below.
