Woven Cable Stitch – Lovely Textured Stitches

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 woven cable stitchout and actually looks like a real basketweave pattern or lattice work the way the stitches all work in together.

It’s more of a challenge to knit this but it’s sure worth it in the end.  Even though it’s more challenging give it a try anyway, you just might surprise yourself.  Pull out some scrap yarn, practice knitting cables a bit and then away you go. Have a little fun knitting time.

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 can create some lovely accessories with the woven cable stitch pattern. In fact I found a lovely scarf knitting pattern that you can try. It’s down the page a bit.

Other things you can knit with the woven cable are iPad covers, pillow covers, place mats, mittens, hat, even a small floor mat or a coffee cozy. Whatever you decide I’m sure it’ll be lovely and 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.
