You know I love cables 🙂     So now there are some new cable knitting resources on the South Mountain ~Naturally website here.

There are a few free cable patterns shown with picture, chart and written directions so you can see how the whole thing fits together.

A discussion on cable nomenclature e.g. how does C4F compare to  2/2LC ? I think I will add to this at some point because the two methods I discuss don’t include the one the Barbara Walker books do.

Chart Elements

The one I’m hoping will be really helpful is the “How to read charts“.

It’s a work in progress:

Feb 22: I’ve added an example of lace charts that omit the WS rows and one on how to chart stitch combinations like “k2tog”.  Hope it’s helpful 🙂
