FLAK baby cable ‘issues’

This is sort of a ‘help me, please’ message for those of you doing the FLAK knitalong…..

My baby cables look weird.  I’m prepared to continue them the way they are for the duration of the back, but would like them to look….better?….on the front.  Any chance you guys have thoughts on this?

The first picture is my baby cables (on either side of a horseshoe).  I have one right-leaning and one left-leaning.

The second picture is my honeycomb cables–made the same way.

You can click on the pics to enlarge them…..

I can’t figure out why they turn out differently, when I’m working them the same way?  The baby cables don’t *look* like cables, while the honeycombs do.

I’m working without a cable needle–right-twists are done by knitting the second stitch, then the first, while left-twists are done by knitting the second stitch from the back, and then the first.

Any ideas?


Thanks in advance.  🙂

    The cables look fine. I too, am also not using a cable needle, but I do take them off the needle and turn them around before knitting……..
