All About Reversible Cables!



Erika's Outlander Shawl in Fable Fibers Novel and TML; Rachel's Moebius Braid Cowl


Suddenly, we can't get enough of reversible cables.

And why not? They're pretty awesome. Just take a look.




As anyone who had the pleasure of knitting Rachel's 2015 Outlander Mystery Shawl (above, in Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock Limited Edition color Craigh na Dun) knows, they're not hard to execute, but the results are amazing - beautiful cables that look as good on the back side of the fabric as they do on the front! Which comes in mighty handy when you want both sides of your project to be equally gorgeous (and who doesn't?). Scarves, cowls, and shawls that wrap around your neck or get tossed over a shoulder certainly fall into this category.

Like the Moebius Braid Cowl Rachel designed for Knitty, below:





Reversible Cables glean their magic from a simple stitch we all know and love: rib. Surprised? We were, too. It seems that easy k1, p1 rib has some hidden talents. Namely, if you pattern cables with it, the backs of them look the same as the fronts, a quality we already make good use of in everyday rib on collars, cuffs, edgings, and more. 

Here's a closer look of one of the cables in my Outlander Mystery Shawl. Look familiar? It was formed by keeping the k1, p1 stitch pattern as I knit the cables off the cable needle.




The rib stitch keeps the cables nice and stretchy, too. Bonus!




Want more? This great video from Rachel explains the ins and outs of this handy trick, and shows you how to do it, too! Keep that one in your back pocket. You're welcome.




Let us know what sorts of projects you've used reversible cables in. We'd love to see them!

Happy Knitting,

Heather
