Cabling Backwards

On my project page, I even explain how I got a finished
look on the toe by bringing the cable to a point.
As promised on my last FO Friday post,  I have written up my notes on how I modified the Daylong Sock pattern to include the cables.  In order to explain thoroughly both the placement of the cables to mirror the design, as well as how to cable backwards, it turned into quite a long-winded post.  These are notes you would need only if you decided to use my modifications to knit the Daylong Socks, so instead of boring you silly here on my blog, I have written up the notes on my Daylong Socks Ravelry page.  I do encourage you to try it!  Cabling backwards sounds more complicated than it is.  You are really just manipulating the purl and knit stitches in the opposite order.  Maybe you will even want to knit the princess-soled Daylong Socks with your own modifications!

I hope you all are having a lovely weekend!


  1. Wow, those look like very detailed notes! I'll have to bear them in mind if I ever knit that pattern. The socks look fantastic :)

  2. Ohh too much yummy yarn!!!
