Day 12 : Side-by-Side Seed Stitch Cable Knit Stitch : #21daysofcableknitstitches

Welcome to Day 12 of the 21 Days of Cable Knit Stitches Series!

We’re learning a new stitch today and it’s a doozy. You’re gonna need a fresh cup of coffee, a quiet space and an extra dose of patience. Don’t worry about reading the abbreviations, just watch the video. I hope that when you watch the video and see it all come together you think “what is she talking about ‘extra dose of patience?’ that was easy.”

Materials:

  • Size US 11 {8mm} Knitting Needles
  • Approximately 75 Yards {68m} of a Super Bulky Yarn
  • {I used Roma by Debbie Bliss}
  • 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.
