Day 20 : Double-O Cable Knit Stitch : #21daysofcableknitstitches

Welcome to Day 20 of the 21 Days of Cable Knit Stitches Series!

This pattern uses two cables side-by-side using knit & purl stitches giving the cable even more depth and texture. This is such a pretty stitch! It reminds me of an owl. Enjoy today’s stitch because tomorrow’s stitch is a challenge!

Materials:

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