After viewing this video, I thought I would give the technique of cabling without a cable needle a shot:

It's been a little tricky, it is easier to cross the left stitches over the right at this point, the right cross will get easier with focused practice. Finding a rhythm has been such a fascinating process! And it really does go quite a bit faster.
Yeah, that's what I do for the smaller cables. Once you get the hang of it it goes so much faster!

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
