It is worked without using a cable needle and it is an amazing quick knit! I've only tried it with 2 stitch ribbing, but will try some modifications soon.
The cable working pattern goes like this:
K2, P2, * (as many repeats as you like)
K2 tog without taking them off the left needle, then K 1st stich of the 2 on the needle and slip off both, P2
Repeat these 4 rows
I used this stitch to knit this super soft scarf in 100% alpaca wool with 6 cable rows surrounded by seed stitch boarders.
I hope you will give it a try.
As the holidays are approaching soon, I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and thank those who have supported me through out the year in 2010. I appreciate every single comment and click on my little blog so very much!
