The Arrow Cable Stitch

Arrow Cable Knitting Pattern (Right Side)

About this Stitch Pattern


The Arrow Cable stitch creates a column of interlocking cable stitches. The resulting fabric looks like arrowheads stacked on top of each other. The look is achieved by pairing right and left leaning cable twist with reverse stockinette in the center. The cable arrow stitch would be great as an accent on sweaters, scarves, and gloves.
