Like many sock knitters I have a love affair with self striping sock yarns. But sometimes I want to do more than just knit around and around, but also don’t want to carry a complicated pattern around with me, or count rows between cables.  By using the spelling mnemonic “I Before E, Except after C” I came up with a way to make any self striping yarn create its own cable pattern.  Of course, as we all know there are lots of exceptions to that spelling rule, so I added those in too!
