Are They Cables or Are They Braids?
The way they go up and down, I could see calling them braids. But they’re unlike any hair-braid that I’ve seen.
The Swatch Expands
Do you see how the swatch gets bigger at the top?
This is because the cables were scrunching it in.
If I was making this in an actual FO, I would have decreased right after I finished making the cables. I don’t know of a hard-and-fast rule for how many decreases to do, but I’d start with one decrease for each time they cross over. That would be 5 times in this swatch.
