This is a good stitch to learn, it is a easy to do stitch too. I'm a tight crocheter and mine looks a little different then pictured. I have a cable looking stitch that crosses over the front of the other 3 double crochet stitches. This tutorial has you pulling your yarn over the 3 double crochet stitches then making your last double. I guess any way you do it, it looks good. Thank you for sharing this free crochet cable stitch tutorial.
