Slipping and knitting the stitches.

Sarah White

To make the cable, stitches must be twisted. This is accomplished by changing the order that the stitches are knitted in.

Slip the next three stitches onto a cable needle as if you were purling them. Bring the cable needle in front of the other two working needles. Then knit the next three stitches off your left-hand needle.
