OXO Cable Stitch Pattern-Cable Knitting Fun

The OXO cable stitch pattern has to be the cutest cable pattern I have knitted up and you just have to try it too.

OXO Cable

If you are sentimental like I am then this is the perfect stitch pattern to use on your family and loved ones.  What a nice way to give and send a hug to someone you love.

Talk about love going into every stitch.  It’s just perfect.

If you’ve been practicing cable knitting then you just have to try the OXO cable. It’s not much more difficult. And for those of you who are still nervous about trying cables, please pull out your scrap yarn and give this a try. Hey it’s just knitting and if you’re using scrap yarn it won’t matter.

You might surprise yourself. I’ve mentioned before, I avoided cables for 25 years…sheesh and I’m so happy I tried.

If I can do this I just know that you can too.

And it’s great cable knitting practice.
