Woven Cable Stitch Pattern

The woven cable stitch pattern looks amazing to me.  I am always amazed at what you can create when you knit and this pattern is an eye-popper.

It really stands out and actually looks like a real basketweave pattern or lattice work the way the stitches all work in together. 

It may be a challenge to knit this but it's sure worth it in the end.  Even though it's more challenging give it a try anyways, you just might surprise yourself.  Pull out some scrap yarn and away you go.

Woven Cable Stitch Pattern

The woven cable stitch creates a tight, dense fabric so you may want to try using bigger needles.  And because it is quite a tight fabric it doesn't have a lot of drape.  You'll have to see how it turns out on bigger needles.

Your stitches will also be tight because of the stitch pattern so don't be afraid that you're doing it wrong.  You see there are no purl stitches in between the cables and there is no extra space either so that's why it works up pretty tight.  

Even though the woven cable stitch doesn't drape that well you can make some really pretty accessories with it. 

How about trying to make a pillow, place mats, scarf, mittens, hat, even a small mat.  Actually I am very tempted to start knitting up a scarf with this pattern stitch.  I think it would look lovely and be so warm.

Before you start you may like to refresh your memory on how to knit cables  just so that you're all ready to go.

Here is The Woven Cable Stitch Pattern

For this stitch pattern you will need to know how to work both a left cross and right cross cable. 


C4F (cable 4 front):  Slip next 2 stitches to a cable needle and put in front of work, k 2 from left needle, k 2 from cn.

C4B (cable 4 back):  Slip next 2 stitches to a cable needle and put in the back of work, k 2 from left needle, k 2 from cn.

cn = cable needle

rep = repeat

Cast on a multiple of 4 sts.

Row 1 (Right Side - cable row):  *C4F; rep from * to end.

Row 2 (WS):  Purl

Row 3 (cable row):  K2, *C4B; rep from * to last 2 sts, k2.

Row 4:  Purl

Rep rows 1 - 4.

And that's all there is to it.  It's a gorgeous cable stitch pattern and I know it's more of a challenge to work but what an awesome feeling to make it.

Have some fun with it though.
