How to Knit Basic Cables:

C6F & C6B Patterns

This simple cabling tutorial walks you through how to knit two popular basic cables - one left leaning and one right leaning.
The difference between the methods is very easy; it all depends on whether you have the cable needle at the front or at the back...that's it!

In knitting patterns, these cables would likely be written as C6F (cable 6 front) and C6B (cable 6 back)…. or, less commonly, 3/3 LC and 3/3 RC.

I hope you find this useful :)

I hope you enjoy knitting along!
