knitting experiment # 2


My second knitting experiment wasn't quite as successful as the 'Moose & Moss Stitch'. It was the first time I had attempetd cable so using 3 needles baffled me a little bit.
No craft project is ever a complete failure......, I managed to turn this NQR Cable sample into a brooch.



I'll let you know once I've mastered cable but if you have any handy tips to make it simpler please let me know.

I think cables only turn out well when done in stockinette stitch. It looks like maybe yours are in garter stitch? Give stockinette a try and see how it works for you :)
