Super Cables Step By Step (High-Relief Cables)

Super Cables Step by Step

Cables are gorgeous. We like them because they add a fantastic texture to our projects. But if we could make the cables even more textured, that would bring them to a whole new level of gorgeousness.

A simple and ingeniously clever High-Relief Cables method developed by Assia Brill allows us to do just that. Assia kindly allowed me to share this method with you, my friends, in this detailed step-by-step tutorial.

With just a small adjustment, we can make any cable more prominent. These cables stand out even when we place them on a stockinette background and make them with a variegated yarn.
They stay strong after washing, and they are not afraid of blocking.

These are super cables that look terrific on heavily cabled hats, scarves, cowls, and Aran sweaters, as well as on projects with only a handful of cable elements.

The best part is that it only takes one clever trick to transform any cable into a super cable. This trick involves “ghost stitches”.

Intrigued? Let’s see how this method works step by step.

Because we use ghost stitches, these cables take up more yarn, especially when we make an Aran sweater or some other project with lots of cables.

But it is totally worth it – the cables formed by this method are not just beautifully embossed, they also look great on the wrong side of the work, and they don’t have those ugly elongated stitches at the sides of each cross. The mighty ghost stitches took care of that imperfection as well.
