I've been doing some experimenting this evening and thought I'd share.

Tunisian crochet cables!

It was a little bit finicky.  This is what I did:

ch 14

Do the Tunisian simple stitch for a few rows.

For the first two cables I did the simple stitch for seven stitches, I moved the last three loops I lifted onto the hook onto a second hook, then lifted loops up in the next three stitches, then put the three on the other hook back on the original hook (this was the first finicky part... I suspect that using wool might have worked a lot better... I used acrylic.  A bigger hook might have been a good idea, too).

I continued on with the simple stitch to the end of the row (4 more stitches)

I worked the loops off as normal.

The next three rows were done as normal (though, the one right after the one described above was *really* finicky.  Like, a lot.), then I did the "move the stitches around" thing again.

I wasn't happy with how it looked... kind of flat-ish, so I tried it again, this time using the tunisian knit stitch on the cable stitches only. (I think that's what it's called... you might be able to see the handful of knit stitch rows I did before starting the second pair of cables... they really do look an awful lot like knitting!)

I think using the knit stitch on the cables would look a LOT better than using the simple stitch if only I knew that the heck I was doing. lol

Has anyone else tried this?
