Difficult techniques:
1- ’starting’ the closed cable can be tricky to get even. I used the second of the two options given for the central double increase in the key at the start of the book.
2 – look out for the four ‘clusters’ in the chart. Pull them tighter than you think is necessary, because when you block the work they will then look even and the ‘floating’ thread will lie flat but not loose.

    Another lovely cable swatch. This is a favorite because of its graceful curves. Very nicely knit.
