Assia Brill came up with an amazing way to make knitted cables more prominent and textured. But this approach is not limited only to the regular crossed cables formed by knit stitches. We can also apply the High-Relief Cable method to travelling cables that are built by knit and purl stitches.
We do it by using “ghost” stitches, but we add those stitches only around the part of the cable that is formed by knits.
Here’s how we do it step by step.
The cables formed by this method are not just beautifully embossed, they also don’t have those ugly elongated stitches at the sides of each cross. The mighty ghost stitches took care of that imperfection as well.
