The Crossed Cables Stitch

Description

The Crossed Rib Stitch is a beautiful example of the 2x2 Rib Stitch that has been varied with some Cabling techniques.

The "base" of the stitch is founded in a straight-forward 2x2 Rib Stitch i.e. knit two, purl two. This ribbing is then offset by the use of cable six forward/backward techniques to producing the crossing effect.

It is similar to the Crossed Ribs stitch, but with less rows between the cables producing a much more intricate criss-crossing effect.
