Cables in the round
I want to make some wrist warmers/fingerless gloves. I am knitting in the round. I had planned on doing cables on them, but I have messed up. The part of the cable that slants to the left was fine, but when I tried to make the right slanting cable, it ended up on the wrong side of the work. Before I frog for the 5th time.... How do I get the cable to be on the right side of my work?

Moving the needle with the waiting stitches to the front or back of the work determines where it's right or left slanting. Are you following a pattern? It should tell you whether you need to cable front or back.

Are you cabling on the correct row? I couldn't figure out how to do reversible cabling (cables that show up on both wrong and right sides of the work) until I read that you should cable on odd # row repeats (e.g, cable every 7th row). Very cool!

So I infer that this means if you want your cables to only show up on one side consistently (i.e., on the 'right' side), that it should be on an every even # row repeat (e.g, every 8th row).

Hope this helps!! Good luck, been there, done that ....

Isn't this only the case if you knit flat?

As far as I can tell, Dee, it seems to work out the same for circular knitting - let me know if not. I've knitted a couple of cabled hats in the round, and they were not reversible (cabling on even # row repeats) - although, reversible cabling on a hat does present interesting possibilities!!

Anyone else with ideas?? :thinking:
