Have you ever wondered how some knitters manage to knit perfect increases without leaving gigantic holes in the fabric? I have broken the code for perfect celtic cables and I'm sharing my knowledge with you here!
Before we dive into the technique of this stitch, let’s ponder on where it is and can be used.
I know I use it for cables, to get the perfectly round shape at the bottom of a swirl like on my Sprouts Shawlette.
What do you need to do this?
I’d recommend sharp needles like these.
Especially for inc to 5 the yarn tension is high and you need to pull your yarn very hard and be able to pick up very tight stitches, so lace needles come in handy here.
It’s also important that your yarn isn’t too weak so it snaps under the tension.
