The reality of cable knits is that they have a right side and a wrong side, making it difficult to use these beautiful knitting features in projects that need to be nice on both sides. This amazing technique eliminates the problem by incorporating a rib pattern into the cable, allowing the knit stitches to show nicely on both sides.
