Day 5 : Mini Honeycomb Cable Knit Stitch : #21daysofcableknitstitches

Welcome to Day 5 of the 21 Days of Cable Knit Stitches Series!

The cables on this one are a little different, it only use 2 stitches and it’s a bit of a juggling act. It creates so much depth & texture though! I’m loving the look of this stitch. This headband will be extra warm & cozy.

Materials:

  • Size US 9 {5.5mm} Knitting Needles
  • Approximately 95 Yards {87m} of a Bulky Yarn
  • {I used Super Soft Merino by Purl Soho}
  • 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.
