The Rhombus Delight Cable Stitch

Stitch Description

The Rhombus Delight is a cable stitch pattern that is comprised of a cabled column, bordered by vertical pillars of twisted stockinette. The unique texture of the rhombus is created through twisted cable stitches, which use both knits and purls. The rhombus delight can be used as an all over pattern or you can pull out one repeat to be used as a panel stitch. Try this cable knitting stitch in blankets, pillows, or even a sweater body.
