Right-Slanted Cable - Positioning the Cable Needle for a Right-Slanted Cable
The secret to a right-slanted cable is putting the cable needle in the right place when you knit the other stitches. For a right-slanted cable, that means behind the working needles, thus the name cable back. Page 3.

Right-Slanting Cable - How to Knit from the Cable Needle for a Right-Slanting Cable
Knitting from the cable needle onto the right-hand needle makes the magic of the right-slanting cable happen. Page 4.

Knit a Sock on Two Circular Needles - Picking Up the Other Side of the Gusset
Do basically the same thing you just did on the second needle so that you have half of your stitches on each needle and can shape the gusset and knit the foot of your sock. Page 5.

Knit a Sock on Two Circular Needles - Continuing to Knit the Sock and Finishing
Continue as established, working each half of the sock with its own circular needle, all the way down the gusset, foot and toe. Then just graft as usual and your sock is done! Page 6.

Grafting - How to Use Kitchener Stitch for Grafting
Grafting, also known as Kitchener Stitch, is a popular way to close up sock toes and other pieces of knitting that are live on two needles. It can be a little intimidating, but with practice and a mantra in your head, it gets easier.

Kitchener Stitch - Preparation Part Two
To continue to set up for the Kitchener Stitch, you must sew through a stitch on the back needle as well. Page 2.

Kitchener Stitch - Knit On
The first step in Kitchener Stitch/grafting is to knit off the first stitch. Page 3.
