The Large Horn Cable Stitch

Stitch Description

The Large Horn Cable is a panel stitch pattern that resembles the wide horns of a steer, stacked on top of each other. It’s a bold cable knitting stitch perfect for multiple project types.

This stitch is worked just like the horn cable stitch but over 16 sts instead of 6sts. It creates a very strong and sophisticated column of cables. The large horn cable stitch would be great for aran sweaters, blankets and adding an extra bit of coziness to any project!
