This week we continue learning about crochet cables with this Twisted Cable Stitch.
The Twisted Cable Stitch is a fairly straight forward crochet stitch with an easy two row repeat, once you get the hang of working the front post stitches. Really the first row of front post stitches is the most challenging as it requires counting your stitches. But after that first row, all of the front post stitches are worked around the post stitches below them making them much easier to find. Once you get the hang of them, cables are quite fun!

For this tutorial today I will be using a small amount of Pima Cotton Yarn by Lion Brand Yarn in one colour. It is a worsted weight, 100% cotton yarn. The hook shown in the video below is a 5 mm birchwood crochet hook by Rowan Yarns. However you may use any hook and yarn combination you choose, even experiment with stripes of colour!

Crochet Twisted Cable Stitch:
Stitches and Abbreviations:
Ch – Chain
Fpdtr – Front Post Double Triple/Treble Stitch
Hdc – Half Double Crochet Stitch
Rpt – Repeat
Yo – yarn over
To begin you will make a foundation chain. For this pattern, the cables themselves require a multiple of 5 stitches. Then you simply work out how many stitches you would like to have in between the cables and then add one for your foundation chain.
For this particular swatch where I will work three stitches in between each cable, I will chain 28.
