    cn = cable needle
    c2b = slip two stitches to the cable needle and hold it in the back
    c2f = slip two stitches to the cable needle and hold it in front.

    You can see an instructional video on how to do this at (the link will open in a new window [or tab, depending on your browser]). Hope this answers your question! If not, let me know. You can comment here, or e-mail me

    You say this pattern is for beginners. I am a beginner and I was sailing along just fine until I came to row 5. I don’t even know what a cable needle is!

    Bel, that’s the beauty of being a beginning knitter. With each pattern, you learn something new! This pattern is great for beginners because of how easy it is, while providing a very basic cable pattern for learning and practicing cables. It’s perfect for a second or third project. (I created it when I was a beginner. It was my third project ever, created after reading [NOT copying] a few on-line tutorials on how to create basic cables – my first experience with cables and cable needles)

    Thanks! I think this is a perfect project for practicing cables. One can always use a dishcloth and it won’t take long to make.

    Directions are written in a straightforward manner. Thank you for sharing.
