- Cable It: check out the blog series “Guide to Slipped Stitch Cables” and the “Cheat Sheet” for a quick start guide for the multi-stitch cables.
- Track It: since this garter slipped stitch design is worked flat, the color changes and numbering are similar to that of brioche. Each Row number is worked twice: once with MC and once with CC. So that’s two consecutive right side rows followed by two wrong side rows. A circular needle is used to enable moving to the end to pick up the appropriate color where it was left off.
- Stitch It: cabling only happens on the right side rows. Wrong side rows are resting rows – stitches are either knit or slipped on MC rows and either knit, purled, or slipped on CC rows.
