In this tutorial, we will cover the cable technique. A cable is a design feature that creates a rope-like twist in the knitting. The twist is created with the aid of a cable needle and the slant of the cable is achieved by the way we cross the stitches from the cable needle.

Although they may seem difficult, cables are actually quite simple, take them step- by-step with this tutorial and you will be creating aran designs in a jiffy!
