I hate knitting things together tbl.
I think, and someone will need to correct me if I'm wrong, that you can slip the 4 stitches knitwise, then put them back on the left needle and then k4tog in place of the tbl.
Or, could you do two SSK instead of one k4togtbl.
He's right with the cable...it wouldn't work. But you could slip them onto the cable needle and K4togtbl and k4tog right from there. The needle is smaller so it's easier to do it.
I'm not sure about the SSK or the slipping though.
