Eyelet Mock Cable Ribbing Stitch

The Eyelet Mock Cable Ribbing Knitting Stitch Pattern

About this Stitch Pattern

The Eyelet Mock Cable Ribbing Stitch is a unique pattern that combines cabling, ribbing, and lace into one beautiful stitch. As this is a mock cable, no stitches are actually crossed. Instead the illusion of cabling is achieved through using a clever decrease. This is a relatively simple stitch to knit but the effect looks more complicated than it is.

Use the eyelet mock cable ribbing stitch in anything that can use ribbed stitches, such as a hat, scarf, or even as a decorative element in a sweater.

    I love this pattern a quick and easy cable. Although, I found that the first time I knitted it, the sides rolled so this time I am on the RS -slipping the first and last stitch (knit wise) and on the WS pearling the first and last stitch. (Every row) It is framing my scarf and not curling on the edges. Just wanted to share this information!

      Sort of. A yrn is a type of yarn over. It is usually used when going from a purl stitch to another purl stitch.
