Knots and Crosses Cable Stitch Pattern


This is the latest cable stitch pattern called Knots and Crosses. It only uses C6B and C6F. 

I have a video on how to do these cables if you need instructions.

The first pattern listed is the cable pattern. They are the stitches needed in order to complete the cable. The second, I added 5 stockinette stitches at the beginning and end of each row. You should probably add garter or moss stitch to the borders so they don't curl. I was just testing out the pattern so I wasn't worried about that. That's also why I didn't bind off which I usually do.



The picture above is the first set of 28 rows



Supplies I used:

Needle Size: 10.5

Cable Needle (blue yarn needle)

Caron 1 Pound yarn, tan

Gauge: 4.5 sts and rows per inch
CABLE PATTERN - Uses 12 stitches

I added 5 knit stitches before and after the cable but you may want to do different border stitches. It curls quite a bit on the edges.




Cable pattern chain 12:

Row 1, 3, 5, 9, 11, 15, 17: K12

Even Rows: Purl 12

Rows 7, 13: C6B, C6F
Rows 19, 25: C6F, C6B

Repeat 5-28 for the cable pattern
