How to knit a cable without cable needle

Our videos do not have sound.

We are a worldwide company and our videos are watched by people around the world, speaking different languages, many of whom do not understand English.

We have therefore written instructions to accompany this video, and there is no sound to disturb while watching. Enjoy!

You can adjust the speed of this video by clicking on the icon, on the play bar.

In this DROPS video we show how to knit a cable over 2 sts without using a cable needle.

This video shows first cable leaning to the right, next cable leaning to the left.

Cable leaning to the right: Knit 2nd stitch on left needle at the same time as 1st stitch is still on needle. Then knit 1st st and lift both sts off left needle.

Cable leaning to the left: Knit 2nd stitch in back loop on left needle at the same time as 1st stitch is still on needle. Then knit 1st st as normal and lift both sts off left needle.

You must read the pattern to be able to follow. You’ll find patterns where you can use this technique by clicking on the pictures below.

Thank you for answering my question. I will play with it see what I can come up with and will share my learning in the future.

I love your videos and patterns. I knit the Eastern European way which in comparison with continental I would be called a piker ? ? Can you teach that method please? Some of the patterns I can't translate then to my method. However having a small video would help tremendously. Thank you.

Dear Maria, You can find videos for different ways of knittingalthough if you knit either way it will not be the same way. The trick to knit this cable is to knit the2nd stitch before the 1st stitch on your left needle. Happy Knitting!

Phantastisch erläutert und gezeigt! Hätte ich dieses Video doch schon früher gesehen ;-) Aber nun kann's ja gut weitergehen mit "zopfen"! Eure Videos sind eine wahre Goldgrube.

Wohoo... Tror minsann jag äntligen har hittat hem. Min nyss upptäckta hobby bär inte någon direkt kunskap. Men här får jag precis vad jag behöver. :D
