The Mystery Blanket Challenge Square Ten: Honeycomb Cable
Cabling is another of those techniques that always seems impossible until you actually give it a go. With just a few stitches per cable and eight rows per repeat, Rosie’s simple honeycomb design is the ideal way to learn how to cable on a small scale without the worry of ruining a larger make with a mistake. Grab your needles and let’s cast on!
Cables can lean to the left or right and need to be worked slightly differently. It may feel a little strange at first but this square will give you plenty of practice: To C2R (‘cable two right’): slip the next two stitches onto a cable needle and hold at the back of your work, knit the next two sts, then knit the two stitches from the cable needle To C2L (‘cable two left’): slip the next two stitches onto a cable needle and hold at the front of your work, knit the next two sts, then knit the two stitches from the cable needle
