Cable Stitch Pattern

This stitch pattern is a perfect choice for a warm sweater, hat or scarf. Because of the cable twists the fabric is thicker than the ordinary stockinette stitch.

Cast on an odd number of stitches. Make sure to start each right side row with a knit stitch and each wrong side row with a purl stitch. Then add the required number of repeats (2 stitches between lines A and B) to accommodate the number of stitches in your project.

Follow the chart. Repeat rows 1 and 2 as necessary for completing your project.

Note: the chart depicts stitches in right side rows from right to left (that is, your first stitch in right side row will be the first stitch on the right of the chart), and stitches in wrong side rows from left to right (that is, your first stitch in wrong side row will be the first stitch on the left of the chart). To make this concept easier, the number of each row is shown at the beginning of the row (number 1 is on the right side of the chart and number 2 is on the left side).
