Cable Comfort Throw

A perfect way to learn to cable! If you know how to knit and purl, you can make this beautiful throw. Just work the stitches carefully for each row, working the cable according to the directions in the Cable Stitch Explanations.

 

Basically, a cable is nothing more than moving stitches so that they change places with other stitches. To move stitches, just slip the indicated number of stitches off your left needle and onto a cable needle. Allow the cable needle to hang from your knitting with the stitches on it while you work stitches from your left needle. Then, following the specific row directions, work the stitches from the cable needle.
