How to knit a cable knot

In this DROPS video we show how we knit a cable knot.
We have already cast on 27 stitches with DROPS Eskimo and knitted 2 rows. Measure the piece from here. K1, P5, K5, P5, K5, P5 and K1. Then work K over K, P over P and K the edge stitches until piece measures approx 8 cm, work next row from RS.

Now we start with the "cable knot". Put 6 stitches on the right needle. * Use the other thread end in the skein, K 5, turn, P5, turn and continue with stockinette stitch until the piece measure for approx. 6 cm, cut the thread and put the stitches on a thread / stitch marker *. Put the 5 next stitches on the right needle. Work the next 5 stitches the same way as explain between * - *. Put the 11 stitches on the right needle back on the left needle. Make a knot with the "2 cable stitches". K1, P5, put the next 5 stitches from the thread / stitch marker on the left needle and K these, P5 stitches, put the 5 next stitches from the thread / stitch marker on the left needle and K these stitches, P5 and K1.

Continue with K over K, P over P and K the edge stitches until piece measures approx 8 cm and knit a new "cable-knot".
