How to Knit the Woven Cable Stitch

music in video is from demo 2008 by (Latchxe9 Swing) / CC BY-NC-SA 2.0

This video knitting tutorial will help you learn how to knit the woven cable stitch. This cable pattern creates a tight, dense fabric with a woven look. It does not drape very well, but may be good for pillows and afghans.

Skill: Intermediate

Cast On: Multiples of 4

For this pattern you will need to know the following techniques:

Knit – k

Purl – p

Cable Four Front – C4F

Cable Four Back – C4B

Pattern:

Row 1 (RS): *C4F; rep from * to end

Row 2: Purl all stitches

Row 3: K2, *C4B; rep from * to last 2 sts, k2

Row 4: Purl all stitches

Repeat rows 1 – 4 until you have reached your desired length.

    I want to knit this as a blanket. How many stitches should I cast on in order to make it into blanket?

      I can’t tell you that. It is dependent upon a lot of factors. How tight you knit, what size yarn you’re using, what size needles you’re using, and what gauge you knit this pattern. You’ll need to do a gauge swatch, figure out your stitches per inch, then multiply that by the width of the blanket you want to make, then divide that by the cast on multiples to make sure you have an even number of repeats. If you do not, then add or subtract stitches until you do.

      does that make sense?

    several years ago, vogue knitting feature (on the cover) a jacket and cape (and hat) knit in this stitch (in red)

    they suggested, that knitters learn how to cable with out using a cable needle (just skip first two stitches, k2, then knit first two.

    Its a bit tricky–but make this stitch pattern much easier, and faster to work.
