Step-by-Step Cable without a Cable Needle

Hi {!name_fix} - We're knitting Lacy Maizy this month. As much as I love lace, I love cables, too. So this design combines both! Interested? If you have not already done so, you can get the Lacy Maizy pattern at the August KAL page.

Although I love the look of cables, I am not very fond of fiddling with a cable needle. It interrupts my flow of knitting and takes me out of my zen, lol. So, for simple cables like those in Lacy Maizy, I forego the cable needle and just re-position the stitches using the needles I am knitting with already.

The Lacy Maizy pattern includes step-by-step instructions for doing the cables both with and without a cable needle.

If you’ve been wanting to learn and practice making cables without a cable needle, here’s your chance! To help you if you need visual guidance, I’ve also posted a Step-by-Step Tutorial on the KnitHeartStrings site. This method can be applied to making other cables than just those in Lacy Maizy.
