I copied a free pattern for boot cuffs. My problem
is how to put the correct stitches on the double pointed needles in order to get the cable section even so I will
not be splitting it up on different needles. It was posted
by andytmo7. It says to cast on 52 stitches, join in round.
I'd like to make 3 sets of this pattern and time is limited to make them for Christmas. Any help would be appreciated.

With 52 stitches, I would use a short circular needle

In stead of knitting in the round on dpn's try using one long circular needle using the Magic Loop technique...that way you could arrange the stitches on the loop in a manner that would allow you to have your cable stitches all on one or the other needle.

Can't find the pattern (there are several boot cuff patterns) or andytmo7, so more info is needed. Can you tell us how many stitches are in the cables and where they occur? It would help if you could type a line or two of the pattern that show the placement of the cables (& do you knit with 4 or 5 DPNs?).

I'm not familiar with Magic Loop.
I use 4 needles.
Directions given in pattern
co52 stitches,k2,p2 for 1.5 inches,k2rows.
Row 1 k9,92,k2tog,yo,k9,yo.ssk.p2,k9,p2,
k2tog,yo,k9,yo,ssk,p2
Rows2,4,6,8k9,p2,k13,p2,k9,p2,k13,p2
Row3 c6b,k3,p2,k2tog,yo,k9,yo,ssk,p2,c6b,k3,p2,k2tog,y0,k9
yo,ssk,p2
Does this give you enough info to define the cable stitches?

Just make sure that the (C6B and C6F) stitches are on the same needle.
If they are split between 2 needles, just slip those stitches onto one of the needles.
It will not affect the knitting.

That is only part of the cable pattern... the part where you do the cable 6 stitches to the back....which is done by placing 3 stitches on a cable needle (a DPN can be substituted for cable needle) move those stitches on the needle to the back of your work, knit the next three stitches...then knit the three stitches form the cable needle (or DPN). then follow the rest of the pattern until you reach the next c6b. Several rows further along you will be directed to do a c6f which is worked in a similar manner...except instead of placing the first 3 stitches (on the cable needle) to the back of the work, you will move them to the front of the work, knit the next three stitches then knit the three from the cable needle.

I prefer the circulars because you don't need to move the stitches around on the needles.

I am working on a cable and lace hat for my mom. I started with the ribbing, but then when I got to the cable portion I adjusted the needle placement so that I would move from one needle to the next in the purl section between the cables and lace. With the hat I'm having to re-adjust the stitches between the needles as I work the decreases for the crown. As your cable pattern moves you might need to do the same.

I have made several pair of these using different needles, I find a 12" circular the easiest to use!
