Tips

  • Keep the tension even.
  • Remember to tighten up the first stitch on the hook when picking up stitches on the forward row. This will help to keep the edge straight and even.
  • The last stitch in the forward pass is picked up through two vertical strands.
  • If you are not too experienced with crochet cables, use a larger size hook to crochet the cable row so that it is easier to pick up stitches in the next row.
  • Optional – place a stitch marker on every cable row to keep track of the rows in between.
