I swear that I read somewhere that by using twisted knit stitches on the edges of cable stitches that it is possible to define a cable so well that it appears to float off the background, almost as an afterthought cable.
Can anyone help me find a reference to this? I could have sworn I read the tip here at knittinghelp.
if your purling before your knitted cables they usually jump out dont they? I dont think I seen a cable not stand out before.
In most cases they do. But sometimes I make cables in a yarn that is very busy and they will tend to 'drown' in the colorways. With the technique I read about, even cables on a busy background will pop out very clearly....
