The Inverted Gull Cable Panel Stitch is a beautiful slipped stitch cable pattern. Made by using a pair of 1 over 3 cross stitches, these cables have elongated stitches. By mirroring these cables next to each other, the effect looks like a flock of seagulls flying in a row. With only 4 rows and a simple cable repeat, Inverted Gull Cable is an easy stitch for beginner knitters to experiment with.
This cable panel can be used on its own as a decorative elements, worked with other cables for an aran sweater, or repeated in a blanket or scarf.
