Left Cable without a Cable Needle

2/2LC

(2 over 2 Left Cable)

1C4L1

 This is a 4 st cable so we’ll be crossing 2 stitches over 2 stitches. Stitches 1 and 2 will be crossed to the left in front of stitches 3 and 4.

Insert the right needle into the back of stitches 3 and 4.

Now slip all 4 stitches off the left needle. Stitches 3 and 4 are on the right needle and stitches 1 and 2 are off the needles completely. (Notice how I’m holding the loose stitches with my thumb? I don’t want them to escape!)

Slip stitches 1 and 2 back to the left needle.

Then slip stitches 3 and 4 back to the left needle.

All 4 stitches are back on the left needle and we’re ready to knit the cable.

The cable is turned!
