Hi Im knitting a dolls jumper and although I've knitted for years I haven't done cableing before so I thought I'd give it a go on this pattern. however I don't understand how I can cable in line with the pattern . can anyone help explain it to me please. instructions are
1st row right side p3 *k4,p3 rep from * to end
2nd row k3, *p4,k3 rep from * to end.
3rd and 4th rows as 1st and second rows
5th row p3 * C4, p3 rep from * to end.
its that last row of course which I don't understand ok I p3 but then do I transfer the next 4 stitches to the cable needle and if so do I then p3stitches or should I be knitting 4 stitches. Anyones help is much appreciated I'd love to add cableing to my knitting projects. hope someone can help best wishes denise
A cable 4 is really 2/2. There are a total of 4 stitches in the cable. You put 2 on the cable needle and hold to the back or front, as the directions indicate, knit 2 from the needle and then 2 from the cable needle.
