In this tutorial, we learn how to knit cables. You will need to place stitch markers where you are going to begin your pattern for the cable and end it. Now, take a double pointed needle and make sure it's not bigger than the needle you are knitting with. Work your pattern throughout the middle of your project by making a robe one, then begin the cable knit. Purl the first two stitches, then knit the next six. After this, purl one stitch and knit three other stitches. Continue to do this process until you meet your bottom marker, then you will be able to continue on the next row and create a unique project.
