The Textured Cable Stitch :: Knitting Stitch #526

Stitch Description

The Textured Cable Stitch is a beautiful seeded cable pattern. While this cable can look intimidating, all you need is to keep you knits and purls in check, and this cable will come out great in a snap. Its syncopated cable pattern would look great on Aran Sweaters or a cowl scarf.
