cabling without a cable needle

KNITTING CABLES without the use of a cable needle may seem a bit wild and dangerous, but rest assured, it’s very easy and will save you lots of time and fiddling. It’s especially quick with smaller cables of three or four stitches - the cables whizz past without all that messing around with a cable needle. You may also find your cables look tidier. To create cables without the use of a cable needle, you’ll be slipping and knitting the stitches that make up your cable and then doing the ‘pinch and pull’ manoeuvre: pinching the stitches with finger and thumb while pulling the needle out and then sliding it back in to reposition the stitches in a different order. Making sure your tension is even as you slip and knit will…

wild beauty

THE DRAMATIC landscapes and seascapes of Shetland have long captured the imaginations of artists and writers.

Peter made his first visit to Shetland in 2019, to attend Shetland Wool Week, and his experiences led to the development of a palette of rustic colourways for the company’s newest yarn, Wild Shetland. “Last year I attended Shetland Wool Week for the first time,” Peter says. “It was the tenth anniversary of this yearly event, and I must say I was astonished by the number of people attending from all over the world.” During his time on Shetland, Peter was inspired by the ever-changing colours…

the beauty of cables

ASK A non-knitter to picture a traditional hand knit, and the chances are they would imagine a cable jumper, rich with texture. From practical workwear to elegant wardrobe staples, cabled garments are wonderful projects to knit. In essence, the technique of cable knitting involves moving stitches around the surface of the fabric, to create lines and ropes of knit stitches in counterpoint to the purl background stitches. Sharing patterns The origin of cable knitting is shrouded in myth. One school of thought is that cabling on garments has only been around since the middle of the 19th century, and was created by knitters in fishing communities. Certainly, this technique produces a thick and practical fabric, and some cables and motifs do resemble ropes and fishing nets. The gansey jumpers from Scotland and the…
