PAT­TERN NOTES

Form ca­bles, if de­sired, as work pro­gresses to en­sure that ca­bles are made cor­rectly and to avoid rip­ping and re­do­ing. Weave in loose ends as work pro­gresses. Chain-2 at begin­ning of row counts as first half dou­ble cro­chet un­less oth­er­wise stated. Join with slip stitch as in­di­cated un­less oth­er­wise stated.

SPE­CIAL TECH­NIQUE Ca­bles

Re­fer to tu­to­rial on page 22. Each ca­ble is formed from 2 ad­ja­cent col­umns of lps.

Step 1: Work­ing up from row 1, with 1 ca­ble at a time, twist first lp in right col­umn 1/2 turn clock­wise, then pull 2nd lp in left col­umn through it.

Step 2: Twist first lp in left col­umn 1/2 turn coun­ter­clock­wise and pull 2nd lp in right col­umn through it.

Step 3: With­out twist­ing ei­ther lp, pull next lp in left col­umn through cur­rent lp in right col­umn.

Step 4: With­out twist­ing ei­ther lp, pull next lp in right col­umn through cur­rent lp in left col­umn. Rep last 2 steps un­til all lps are worked. Last, smaller lps should be at top. Cross last left lp over last right lp, and se­cure both lps in place with mark­ers.
