The Small Raised Circle Cable Stitch

Stitch Description

The Raised Circle Cable Stitch is a simple, small cable knitting pattern. With only a 4 stitch repeat, this tiny strip of cables creates a column of stacked rings. It’s an easy stitch to master and works up quickly. 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.
