The Rose Garden Cable Stitch

Stitch Description

The rose garden cable stitch is a simple cable pattern consisting of a central column, framed by columns of twisted stockinette ribs. The result is a fabric that looks a bit like a rose garden. This stitch can be used as a panel, or worked all over to be used in blankets, scarves, or even hats.
