1 stitch cable decreases



This decrease is new to me and it's so interesting. Think how lovely these decreases would look on a raglan sleeve.

Here's how to do cable decreases:

At the beginning of a row, K2. slip next 2 sts to cable needle and hold to back, k2tog (1 st from left-hand needle and 1 st from cable needle), k1 from cable needle.

At the end of a row, work across to the last 5 sts, slip 1 st to cable needle and hold to front, k1, k2tog (1st from cable needle and 1 st from left-hand needle), k2.
