How to knit a cable with a cable needle

In this DROPS video we show how to knit a cable with a cable needle.

When you make cables you switch positions of the stitches. The more stitches that are moved the wider cable.
In the video we make a cable turning to the left, by putting the stitches to be moved on a cable needle in front of work. Next cable turn to the right and then the stitches are put on a cable needle behind the work. The stitches on each side of the cable are being purled on the RS and knit on WS. Then the cables that are worked in stockinette become more visible.
