The Double Snakey Cable Stitch

Stitch Description

The double snakey cable stitch creates a double wave design. This knitted cable panel consists of what looks like two layers of fabric, with touching cable waves on top, and an opposite cable on the bottom. The effect is a nice accent detail which can be used in everything from sweater sleeves to scarves to hats.
