What is a Mini Faux Cable?
Is it the same as a normal cable shown here in the video?

Never heard of that, and google isn't of help either, so I'm at a total loss. What would a faux cable be? Something imitating a cable without being a cable???
What would that be?

Oh, that reminds me of a scarf, falling waters I think it was called, it used very easy stitches, never cable stitches, but produced a somewhat cabled look. Maybe it's that.

here you can see it. It's a lacy pattern

All I know is you don't use a cable need and it's is also called a Mock Cable?

Don't know if that's right though. I was hoping someone would know for sure.

Always wanting to learn more about knitting.

I've got the Vogue Stitchionary for Knit and Purl and there's a pattern in there for a mini cable that doesn't use a cable needle, but looks like a cable. Would that might be it?

It looks like it may be a variation of a twisted stitch. You would knit into the 2nd st on the left needle, then into the first. If there's 3 sts involved, you'd knit into the 2nd and the 3rd, then into the 1st one. Probably.

I just realized the picture that Sknitter56 posted has the 3rd st knit first, from the front. Then you'd knit the 1st and 2nd sts.

Ahhh, great, that's the exact stitch. And it's done just like I thought.
