This is the cable I was talking about just recently. It was rather ‘interesting’ trying to translate the pattern accurately. Think I got it right! Basically, you end up literally tying a knot in the strips that form the cable to get the desired effect. The cable strips themselves are a kind of twisted rib – R1=k2twisted,p2; R2=k2,p2twisted; and so on.

I must admit it took a while to get the twisting right, so there may be the odd ‘normal’ stitch where it shouldn’t be…
