Do you want tiny, verticle cables on the band, or one long, horizontal cable?

Its the tiny verticle cable...

Then you would make 2 or 4 stitch cables seperated by knit and purls, like so:

Cast on required number.
First row, knit 4, purl 2, knit 2, purl 2, knit 4. Repeat for 3 rows
Fourth row- Cable cross, purl 2, knit 2, purl 2, cable cross. Repeat.

Keep repeating those two rows for the whole band. Does that make sense? If it doesn't, I can explain it in greater detail.

That's it!!! Thank you soooooo much.. the sweater I am knitting is plain and I thought if the cuff.collar and band had a small cable it would give it a little class![/b]
