Long Stitch Cable Done on the Passap & ForAll Machines


This cable was fun, fast and easy to do. This is also from the Mary Louise Norman book. The way to do it is to knit several stockinette rows. When you get to the row you want the cables, take an extra piece of yarn and hand knit all of the needles in the row all the way to out of work position. Then pull the work down and forward so the needles are in working position. Cross your six cable stitches across the row. There is so much ease on the needles when doing this that you don’t need to pull the needles out to hold on the Brother or knit back the crossed row with an extra piece of yarn like I did in the previous cable on the passap. You must hold the next knitted row down or use weights so that the next row knits off. Knit 6 or 8 rows and repeat. I like the open lacy look . I might try knitting the one row by hand with a contrast color. It might look intersting

      Actually it is one of the easiest cables I have ever done. Often times we forget the hand manipulated designs because we want the machine to do it. I think this would look pretty as a scarf.
