Live Loop Crochet Cables

I downloaded the Interweave Crochet Fall 2017 edition this week because it had a headline that said "the NEW Cable Technique that Looks Knitted!"  Sure, I'd like to see that.  And holy smokes!  They were right - the cables look knit, and without the holes that post stitch crochet cables produce.

It's rather revolutionary - it kind of looks like a modification of regular cable knitting, but it produces an I-cord cable that seems to walk up the fabric somewhat independently of the background stitches. 

I am smitten.   And intrigued.   Has anyone else tried this? The author of the magazine article has a blog post with a video showing how to make a swatch to get the hang of it, and there are a couple of patterns in Interweave Fall 2017, as well as this post with tips for trying it out. I'll report back once I've got a swatch to play with.  Fun!
