Day 10 : Open V-Stitch Cable Knit Stitch : #21daysofcableknitstitches

Welcome to Day 10 of the 21 Days of Cable Knit Stitches Series!

Today’s stitch uses the same stitches we used on Day 3 but in a completely different combination. Have I mentioned how much I love knitting and the endless possibilities of knit stitches!


Materials:

Size US 11 {8mm} Knitting Needles
Approximately 75 Yards {68m} of a Super Bulky Yarn
{I used Lana Grande by Cascade Yarns}
Cable Needle


Notes:

The CO edge is the width.
You can use any category of yarn you’d like, just keep in mind that the thinner the yarn, the narrower your headband.
