A new twist on cables
If you've been knitting for a while, you know that cables are one of those really popular techniques that look hard to do, but are actually pretty basic. But what if there was an easier, simpler, cuter, tinier way to make cables?

Check out my new tutorial where I teach you a technique called the "right-twist," and then you can test it out yourself using this basic scarf pattern. :)
