How About Those Cables

Are any of you curious about how I addressed the two stitches in between the cables?

Two knit stitches! I loved the idea that so many of you suggested of two purl stitches. If I had not already knit the sleeves with two knit stitches in between the cables, I would have done that.

So, we have here what Veronique calls a shadow cable. And those stitch markers? They mark the locations of my cables.

 

Thanks for the shout out, but I have to admit that I lifted the term "shadow cable" from Vogue Knitting, page 155.
Looks like you're chugging along!

ahh! I like it with knit stitches in between. Neat! I am going to have to keep that in mind. That yarn looks so squishy :)

I lost track--is this a cardi with the cables on the side to meet up with the sleeves? I feel a case of envy coming on...

Love how it is turning out so far!

Beautiful cables. I like the two knit stitches. It has a smooth, simple look. Can't wait for the FO.

I like the knit stitches between the cables. It softens the cable, looks great with that wonderful yarn.

they're like french braids.
