Knitted pattern with cabled and crossed stitches

At the heart of all cables the following principle lays: the sequence of stitches in a row varies, for this goal we use an auxiliary needle which should be ½ thinner than working needles. As an auxiliary needle it is convenient to use a short, direct needle or a special needle for cables which has a small bend in the middle to avoid sliding of the stitches.

The position of auxiliary needles during the knitting of following stitches depends on the cable direction: if the cable "twists" to the left, the stitches on the auxiliary needle leave in front of the cloth, and if to the right – beyond the cloth.

It is possible to use practically any yarn for the cable-stitch patterns because thanks to the relief effect these patterns are well visible. However, it is necessary to have in view, that as the patterns with cables have property to constrict the cloth, so, much more yarn is required for their knitting than for other smoother patterns.
