What is a mock cable? It’s a way of creating a twisted-stitch pattern, like cables, but without removing stitches from the needle. Just make sure you have pointy needles.

How To Do A 2-Stitch And 3-Stitch Mock Cable

CO 8 sts
Row 1 (RS): P1, k2, p1, k3, p1
Row 2 and all even rows: k1, p3, k1, p2, k1
Row 3: p1, MC2, p1, MC3, p1
Row 5: p1, MC2, p1, k3, p1
Row 7: p1, MC2, p1, MC3, p1
Repeat rows 2-7.

As you can see, the 2-stitch mock cable is worked every RS (right-side) row. The 3-stitch mock cable is worked EVERY OTHER RS row.
