Great tutorial! And I do cables all the time. Here's my question, how many stitches can you actually do. You're doing a 4st-RC and a 4st-LC. But if you are getting into larger cables, let's say 8 or 12, would you be able to do that? Or will it be too tight.
And since I do knit on the tighter side, I probably still need the cable needle. LOL
I'll try it out though and it's a lot easier than doing cable needles for only two stitches. That would drive me bonkers!
