Another Look at Loom Knitted Cables…

Have you ever been creating a project on your looms that have lovely cables throughout, but try as you might, you just can’t get those loose sides of the cable twists to tighten up?

I’ve had the very same trouble, let me tell you.  It wasn’t until I was working on these babies as a sample for this book, which are generously endowed with those lovely twists, that I finally figured out a way to tighten those outside loops!

Since then, I’ve had a few requests from my loomy friends for me to create a video tutorial so they can actually see how I’m working them… so, after a long & painful patient wait… the videos are posted! 😀

I’ve used the Cabled Mug Hug pattern as a place to learn these cables, and I’ve even included a new project you can make from the very same pattern!  I think it’s pretty cool when a pattern can be used in several different ways…I just love versatility (can you remember the Winter Whimsy??)

Here’s a sneak preview: What do you think? 😉
