I love needles
« on: April 07, 2006 08:56:40 AM »

I've never worked with a cable chart before or any chart, really.  I'm making this cute cabled vest for my sister for her birthday and I'm flamboozled as to how to read the chart!  I can do cables if it's written out in plain English, though. I know the middle 3 rows are just knitting, it's the first and last ones that are confusing me.
Would one of the clever knitters on craftster help please?
The chart is here:

It's a pdf file.
Thank you so much if you can help!

Wow!  That chart is confusing. 

From looking at the cable I would say that you would do the following for the cabled rows:
slip 2 stitches to cable needle and hold to back of knitting, k2, k2 from cable needle, k1, sl 2 sts to cable needle and hold to front of knitting, k2, k2 from cable needle.

Also, the written instructions say "4 row cable pattern" but the chart shows 5 rows.  I think you need to ignore the top (or bottom, your choice) cable row. 

I hope that helps.

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

You. Are. Awesome.
Thank you so so much, I think I can make sense of it now.
Also, thanks for pointing out the 4-row cable thing, I probably would have done the cable row twice otherwise!

No problem!  I had totally forgotten about this pattern.  Now i'm thinking about it again, thanks for the reminder!
