Note on Cable Stitches 2/2 LC and 2/2 RC

Stitch Map doesn't allow for customized cable stitches. What I noted as "2/2 LC" (2-2 left cross cable) should be:

  1. Slip 2 sts onto cable needle
  2. Hold cable needle in front
  3. K1, brSl from the left needle
  4. K1, brSl from cable needle

"2/2 RC" (2-2 right cross cable):

  1. Slip 2 sts onto cable needle
  2. Hold cable needle in back
  3. K1, brSl from the left needle
  4. K1, brSl from cable needle

Cast-On and Setup

Cast on in DC. Optionally, use a 1x1 ribbing cast on.

Work rows 7 (LC) and 8 (DC) once.

Bind-Off

Bind off in DC using a matching stitch to the CO.
