How to correct cables on your project


Hi knitters!

Last week we learned how to knit cables or braids, but this time, we would like to show you, how to correct cables on your project.

This technique is not very easy to learn but we always use cables on our designs. It’s a common mistake to twist braids wrong while knitting, but we can also correct our mistakes. If you need to correct a cable on your garment, don’t worry, we will show you how to do it!

1. Have a look on the cross where you did the cable wrong.

2. With the help of your little sewing needle and a thread of a different color, cast on the 6 stitches on the cross where you have the wrong cable. It’s important to leave 1 row free where you will cut and correct the cable. Use another thread to cast on the other 6 stitches below.

3. Cut the remaining stitches between the threads of the color used for the correction.

4. Cast on all the stitches below onto your wooden needles and relocate the stitches of the cross.

5. Now that you have the correct position of the crossing, we are going to start knitting the remaining stitches. You always need to check the technique used in the pattern.
