Day 19 : Interlaced Cables Knit Stitch : #21daysofcableknitstitches

Welcome to Day 19 of the 21 Days of Cable Knit Stitches Series!

Cables, cables and more cables. All these cables in one pattern! I know this one looks daunting, but it’s not so bad, really, I promise! Most of the rows are repeats and the cable stitches are easy to memorize. Just try one repeat to see if you like it, if you don’t then chalk it up to a learning experience. However, I have the feeling that you’re gonna be hooked!

Materials:

  • Size US 9 {5.5mm} Knitting Needles
  • Approximately 95 Yards {87m} of a Bulky Yarn
  • {I used Native Twist by Imperial Bulky Yarn}
  • 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.
