    I love your knitting technique. Your cable stitch and your execution of it is very smooth and effortless. I need to practice doing that.
    The stitch is beautiful.

    Love this site and humbly offer a suggestion that you consider selecting light colors for tutorials. I have some difficulty clearly seeing the stitch details when color is dark. Thank you. Dawn

      Thanks for the feedback. We do our best to use yarns that are easy to see, but sometimes we use what our sponsors give us, which is how you can watch them for free.

    I love this stitch! If I wanted to add it for a skirt! would I do 12 panels only for texture?

    Thanks

      I do not understand your question. Can you please clarify?
