Cast on 16 stitches. Knit first 2 rows


First cable - Slip off 2 stitches, and slide the cable needle on to 4 stitches. Let the cable needle fall forward bringing it the front of your work. Knit the next 4 stitches on your knitting needle.

Go back to your cable needle and knit those 4 stitches off of the cable needle. Knit the final 4 stitches on your needle, purl and knit the last 2 stitches.

Turn over your work.

Pro Tip

Make sure you don't twist your cable as you knit the stitches off the needle!


Following the pattern: Slip 1, knit 1. Purl 12 stitches, and finish the row with knit 1, purl 1. Knit the next 5 rows.


On to the next cable row! Slip the first stitch and purl the second. Knit the next 4 stitches.

Put the next 4 stitches on to your cable needle, holding the cable needle at the back of your work. Knit the next 4 stitches on to your regular needle. Follow by knitting the 4 stitches off of your cable needle. Purl and knit the final 2 stitches.


Knit another 5 rows and repeat the cable sequences, following the pattern to reach your desired length!
