Cable :: 4

Here's a stitch pattern that will make any edge appealing. Whether it's a cuff on mittens or a bottom of a sweater you'll get complimented on your knitted creation. It can also be used as an all-over pattern for a hat or a scarf.

Yarn shown in this swatch:
Knitca Delight 100% superwash merino yarn, color 0217 Lavender Pink.

Needles:
US size 6 (4 mm) .

Right side of the pattern: 
Right side of knitting stitch pattern – Cable 4
Wrong side of the pattern: 
Wrong side of knitting stitch pattern – Cable 4

Cast on a multiple of 6 stitches. Add 2 selvage stitches if you want to make a nice-looking edge.

Row 1 (right side): *purl 2 sts, knit 3 sts, purl 1 st*, repeat from * to * as necessary.
Row 2 and every wrong side row: work sts as they present themselves, sts that are slipped in right side rows should be slipped purlwise (yarn in front of the work) in wrong side rows.
Row 3 (right side): *purl 2 sts,slip 1 st knitwise (yarn behind the work), knit 2 sts, purl 1 st*, repeat from * to * as necessary.
Row 5 (right side): *purl 2 sts, slip 1 st to a cable needle and hold it to the front of the work, knit 2 sts, return the slipped st to the left needle and knit it, purl 1 st*, repeat from * to * as necessary.

Repeat rows 3-6 as necessary for completing your project.

You can also work according to the chart below. Pattern repeat is marked by red frame.

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 row 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 row (number 1 is on the right side of the chart and number 2 is on the left side). Ignore this note if you knit in circle and start all your rows from the right of the chart.
