Blissful Braids: 18 Cable Stitch Knitting Patterns

By: Morgan Metcalf, Editor for AllFreeKnitting

It is never too late to add a new knitting stitch to your ever-growing repertoire of knitting skills. After all, with so many stitches available, it could take you years to master them all. For this roundup, we focus on one of knitters' favored stitches— cable stitch knitting.Malabrigo Weave Scarf

Don't let those fancy cable stitched knits scare you off. It's not that hard to learn. Cables occur when criss-crossed layers appear in the final knitted product. They can be made by adding a number of stitches onto a separate needle (a cable needle) while continuing in the pattern as usual. These suspended stitches are then integrated back into the original row, thus creating the famed cable stitch.

Regardless of how long you've been knitting, the odds of you coming across a knitting pattern or two with cable stitch knitting is quite high. These beautiful (often braided) designs add a unique look and feel to all of your knits, turning a simple knit sweater pattern into a more timeless knit. Many knitting beginners may view the task as an advanced way of knitting, but this special technique can be picked up by any knitter regardless of skill level. All it takes is a little bit of time, patience, and determination. Once you get the hang of cable stitch knitting, you'll be able to take your knit scarf and knit hat patterns to a whole new level.
