Opulent Knit Cable

                                                             Download Here

I will show you the pattern below, but you can download the PDF, by clicking on the link above.

Size Needle: 10.5
Finished Size: 6 x 9
Yarn: Red Heart Green
Rows: 48

Work cable on 13 stitches. So multiples of 13 are needed. I surrounded it by Reverse Stockinette Stitch and then by Moss stitch so it wouldn’t curl.  I wrote out the instructions for the even rows but you're just knitting the knits and purling the purls. If you need the written instructions then they are there for you to refer to.

GAUGE: 5.17 stitches per inch
               5.33 rows per inch

Moss Stitch- On Right Side (RS) rows you will K1, P1, K1, P1 K1; On the Wrong Side (WS) rows you will do the opposite of what you see. If you see a knit then you will purl it and so on.

Cable (13 stitch crossover)= Slip 6 stitches to the cable needle, hold in front, then K6 AND P1 then K6 from the cable needle.

Chain 31
(RS) Row 1,3,5,7,9,11,15,17: 5 Moss, P4, K6, P1, K6, P4, 5 Moss
(WS) Row 2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16,18,20: 5 Moss, K4, P6, K1, P6, K4, 5 Moss
Rows 13 and 19: 5 Moss, P4, Cable, P4, 5 Moss

REPEAT ROWS 1-20 as needed.
