The Simple Cable Stitch
The Simple Cable Stitch is a great place for beginners to start working with Cables & Twist Stitches.
The stitch is instantly recognizable, as it adorns many a knitted cardigan and jumper, as panels or as a full pattern. It's also, very suitable for giving cuffs or other fitted areas a little more 'oomph' than a standard rib stitch.
The simplicity in this stitch is that you are working predominately in simple knit and purls (almost producing a wide, offset rib effect). On row five (of a six-row repeat) we add in a cable four forward to create the twisted texture. Simple as the name suggests!
No time to waste, lets get cracking...
Cast on any multiples of seven plus three stitches for your project.
