These patterns were written to help improving knitters to knit cables. I chose two basic cables twisting right and left. I believe that if you can knit a rib pattern you can easily learn to move on to knitting cables. These are also good patterns for more experienced knitters to try out the no cable needle technique. The patterns for both the cafetière and tea cosy are included in this pdf. There are written instructions and charted instructions for each design. I have included links to useful techniques at the end.

I have also created a photo tutorial of the cable techniques used in this pattern: 4 stitch cables (C4B and C4F) with and without a cable needle.
