How to Knit a Continuous Cable Border

applied cable edgingRachael Rabbit has a great tutorial for working a continuous cable border on a knitting project that you’re going to want to grab soon. It will be available through the end of March, at which time she’s making it into a tutorial that will be on her etsy shop.

The process involves picking up some stitches along the edge, then working the cable on additional stitches and joining it to the work as you go. This is a really elegant looking solution to finishing a project without the difficulty of trying to pick up stitches all the way around the project at once or knitting a strip for the border and sewing it on by hand.

Have you ever finished a piece of knitting with an applied border? I’d love to hear about it.

    I just finished a Debbie Bliss baby blanket and I swore never again. This could be a life saver.
