Cabling without a Cable Needle

Shift and cross your stitches without the fuss of a cable needle.

It's no secret that cable needles annoy me. First of all, I can never find one when I need one. Second, knitting is fidgety enough without introducing one more needle. After all, I only have so many hands.

Luckily, you can knit cables without a cable needle. A word of warning, though. This method is not for the faint of heart. It involves slipping stitches completely off of your needles and letting them dangle freely for a moment.
