Hello everyone! I took your advice and braved the stitch repair in the new afghan I am making. I found two purled stitches six rows back. After earlier discussions with so many experts, I curled up in a chair....not easy with sciatica...got a cup of coffee (decaf)...and ripped the first stitch back the six rows...that was easy enough. I also took another's advice and put a safety line a row below where I needed to fix just in case the live loop and runs got away from me. Great safety net! Then I grabbed the crochet needle and hook, hook, hook, hook, hook, hook, and it was fixed! I believe I squealed with glee. My wife looked at me over her glasses and asked if was as good for me as it sounded. I nodded and proceeded to rip the next stitch back six rows and repeat the process. Now, I can't find where the error was. Yippie!
1x1 cable stitch without cable needles.
On the same afghan, the pattern calls for 1x1 cable stitch and it is called Cross 2 right. I don't like to use a cable needle if I don't have to and I found a video that you all might enjoy. She gives a demo of this stitch. It really speeds things along by avoiding the cable needle getting in the way.
