The Raised Circle Cable Stitch

Stitch Description

The Raised Circle Cable Stitch is a simple, small cable knitting pattern. This cable uses left and right slanting cables to create a little column of tiny circles stacked on top of each other. It’s an easy stitch to master and works up quickly. Good for beginners. The background of reverse stockinette makes the Raised Circle Cable stitch really pop. This stitch would be a great accent on a sweater sleeve, or knit close together it could make a lovely ribbed hat or scarf.
